Isle of Forgotten Sins (1943)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

A Real Dive

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Isle of Forgotten Sins is not one of Edgar G. Ulmer's most essential films, and it's more than a little clunky, but it features some inspired miniature work and an energetic lead performance by John Carradine, who would go on to star in Ulmer's next film, Bluebeard. He plays a deep-sea diver who is tricked into retrieving a chest full of stolen gold. It's available on Kino's DVD Edgar G. Ulmer: The Man Off-Screen. (Also known as Monsoon.)
