In "Yellow Wake," a ruthless first mate takes over a whaling vessel and sails toward a lost gold treasure in Panama.
Jonas Love was in a San Francisco saloon when he met Sanford, the first mate of a whaling vessel. In a drunken boast, Sanford had told Love about a buried treasure trove of gold, and how he intended to retrieve it. Love didn't believe him, but when Sanford showed him proof, he decided to go after it himself.
Now, after murdering Sanford, Love has taken over his position as first mate on the whaling vessel, and the course he has charted for their ship takes them where he wants to go.
"Yellow Wake" was written by Bud Nelson. William N. Robson produced and directed. William Conrad, in one of his better performances on Escape, played Jonas Love. Also appearing were John Hoyt, John Dehner, Will Geer, Paul Frees, Stacy Harris, Harry Bartell, and George Offerman, Jr.
