Beyond Atlantis


1973       Leigh Christian

The arrival in Manila of a local fisherman with five huge pearls for sale triggers off the search for more by Vic (Patrick Wayne), Logan (John Ashley) and East Eddie (Sid Haig). Unwillingly, they also take with them Kathy (Lenore Stevens), a local archaeologist. After investigating many islands to the south of the Philippines, they eventually find an island which has a village on it but which is totally deserted. A brief search for pearl beds results in nothing and until contact is established with the inhabitants of the village, the pearling expedition is a failure.

Kathy is wildly excited about the discovery of archaeological treasures belonging to an unknown civilization which seem to indicate the inhabitants of the island are descendents of Atlantis. They discover that these strange islanders have pearlized eyes and are able to stay underwater for great lengths of time - all of their important rituals, including love-making, taking place on the sea bed.

The tribe is led by Nereus, the elder (George Nader), and his daughter Syrene

(Leigh Christian), who are the only two members of the tribe not having pearlized eyes. The reason for this is that the elders of the tribe always mate with an outsider, to produce a child who can mix with the outside world and remain unnoticed. Nereus sees the opportunity to mate Syrene with Vic, Logan or Eddie, so as to ensure the next generation. However, Syrene's mother died in childbirth and Syrene herself is frightened of the same fate. While arguing back and forth, they show the expedition from Manila the pearl beds, which now have no pearls in them since the tribe has taken them all. Syrene therefore has to replace the pearls in the oysters so that the expedition can re-find them, which they do with great enthusiasm.

Finally, Syrene mates with Vic when forced by her father who threatens to kill them if she doesn't.

In pursuit of archaeological knowledge, Kathy narrowly escapes death by piranha fish, tribal spears and the throttling grip of Syrene, who has become jealous because of Vic's attentions to Kathy. In the fight between the two girls Syrene is killed, which means the eventual death of the tribe, since none of the others can mix with the outside world. The young braves of the tribe try to slaughter the expedition which barely escapes by blowing up the tribal temple as a diversion for their escape by sea. in the scuffle of getting on board the boat to leave the island, the pearl chest is accidentally knocked overboard, so the expedition leaves with nothing more than it came with, except the archaeological knowledge of a tribe descended from Atlantis.
