Manfish (1956)

Lon Chaney Jr. is a hoot in this one, this time not really the major character, he rather just blends in. 3 treasure hunter in the West Indies are in pursuit of some gold and other treasure,, there is you’re map which of course is ripped , and in 2 pieces which requires an unwilling alliance between the ship’s captain,, and the professor,, and then you have Swede , played by Lon Chaney Jr. who is loyal to the captain,, throw in a beautiful blonde bombshell and you have a pretty darn decent movie. The allure of the treasure though does get the best of the men as greed takes over instead of common sense,, and one of them wants to try and kill the other,, meanwhile Swede is taking it all in and hoping that the boat named Manfish will one day be his,, there is lot’s of comedy in this movie,, to much to write in this short review,, but I found this film very lovable…
