The crew of a ship bound for Australia is struck by an epidemic of smallpox. Robert Herrick and his girlfriend Faith, the only survivors, wash ashore on a tropical island. The natives bring them to Henry Attwater, a power-mad Englishman who has set himself up as dictator. Attwater intends to make Faith his bride and kill Herrick before the next nightfall. If they are to survive, the young couple must escape the madman's island of terror before it is too late.Adventure Island is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's final novel, The Ebb-Tide (1894). It had previously been filmed in 1937 with Ray Milland and Frances Farmer. At the time a newcomer to Hollywood, star Rory Calhoun had become a favorite in fan magazines after escorting Lana Turner to the premiere of Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945). Early screenings of Adventure Island reportedly led to the film being re-edited after teenage girls continuously squealed during Calhoun's close-ups. Classically-trained English actor Alan Napier appeared in horror films such as The Invisible Man Returns (1940), Isle of the Dead (1945), and The Mole People (1956). He will forever be remembered as Alfred, Bruce Wayne's butler, on the Batman TV series (1966-1968). Director Sam Newfield (here using the alias of Peter Stewart) had a career dating back to the silent era. Newfield made over 250 features, including The Terror of Tiny Town (1938), The Mad Monster (1942) and Lost Continent (1951).Starring Rory Calhoun, Alan Napier, Rhonda Fleming, Paul Kelly andJohn Abbott.
