In "Gold of the Adomar" John Hodiak stars as a deep sea diver who accepts a job salvaging a sunken Spanish galleon filled with treasure.
During his descent, his thoughts drift back to the time when his lust for gold began...when he left the Navy to work for civilian salvage companies as a diver. The money was three times better than what he was making in the service.
His first job offer came from a man who offered him the opportunity to salvage the contents of The Adomar. Nick explained to him that he wasn't foolish enough to go on silly treasure hunts and that he wasn't interested in the job.
Now, he is in his diving suit descending down to the gully where The Adomar rests.....
