Gripping stuff. Good background, nice acting and a plot that would have impressed Robert Louis Stevenson.

This had another radio airing when it re-ran on a January 2008 episode of "When Radio Was", reaching a whole new audience 58 years later.


This one could have been great, but there is one big issue with the ending, imo.


Both of the bad guys are willing to commit murder, so it seems like their problem could be solved with a gun and a little patient digging.

A better ending might be if the beachcomber, unbeknownst to Eddy, had really dumped the treasure in the ocean. Eddy kills him and he and his old lady spend the rest of their lives futilely searching the island for the treasure as the jungle gradually swallows them up.
