3/5 (1)

Isle of Forgotten Sins (also known as Monsoon) is a 1943 adventure film directed by Edgar G. Ulmer and starring John Carradine, Gale Sondergaard, and Sidney Toler. The film is set in the South Pacific and follows a group of adventurers as they search for treasure on a remote island.

The film opens with the crew of a fishing boat led by Captain “Skipper” Larsen (Carradine) picking up a stranded woman named “Rusty” (Sondergaard) and her husband (Frank Fenton) from a life raft. Rusty and her husband reveal that they were on a yacht that was attacked by pirates and sunk. They were the only survivors and managed to escape with a map that leads to a treasure on a remote island.

Skipper and his crew, including a Chinese cook (Toler), set out with Rusty and her husband to find the treasure. Along the way, they encounter a violent storm and the treacherous waters of the South Pacific. They also encounter a group of criminals led by a man named “Blackie” (Veda Ann Borg), who are also after the treasure.

As they explore the island, Skipper and his crew face many obstacles and dangers, including traps set by the previous inhabitants of the island. Rusty and her husband also prove to be unreliable and untrustworthy, and Skipper must keep a watchful eye on them.

In the end, Skipper and his crew manage to find the treasure, but not before facing off against Blackie and her gang in a final showdown. The film ends with Skipper and Rusty sailing off into the sunset, with Rusty’s true motives still in question.

Isle of Forgotten Sins is a classic adventure film with plenty of action, suspense, and intrigue. The beautiful and exotic South Pacific setting adds to the film’s appeal, and the talented cast delivers strong performances throughout.
