He does have one prize result, Lota the beautiful panther woman. Parker's fortunes for escape look up after his fiancée Ruth finds him with the help of fearless Captain Donohue. However, when Moreau's tribe of near-humans rises up to rebel, no one is safe...

If I did know,

maybe I'd want to forget.


Mr. Hogan!

- Are we all free and clear?

- All clear, sir.

- All right. Cast off!

- Cast off!

- All right! Cast off!

- Get up there and clear that line off.

There you are, Dr. Moreau.

That's the last of 'em...

and this is the last time

I'll ever put in here...



Well, you're gettin' off here.

No, I'm getting off at Apia.

You're gettin' off here.

Cast off that line there.

Now hurry it up.

Now, what's happened?

What is it?

It's all right, old boy.

He fell overboard.

On deck!

On deck! Hey!

- You lost a man.

- Well, finders keepers.

Full speed ahead, Hogan!

What's that fool talking about?

- Pull up that ladder, men!

- Aye, aye.

Drop that ladder!

I've got to get to Apia!

You can swim, can't ya?

Davies, take this man with you!

You can't do this, Captain.

There's marine law.

This man is shipwrecked.

You've got to pick him up.

Well, I picked him up

and I dropped him in my first port of call.

That's all that's required of me!

I can't have this man!

I can't have him aboard.

Well, throw him overboard.

That's what I did.

- Davies!

- Hey, Davies, drop that ladder!

This is most unfortunate.

It is indeed.

I simply must get to Apia.

I don't see how. We sight a ship

about once in a 12-month.

Uh, Mr. Parker, Dr. Moreau.

- How do you do?

- How do you do?

Well, Mr. Parker, you may take

Montgomery and the schooner...

and leave for Apia in the morning.

That's very nice. Thank you.

Not at all.

I'm happy to be of service.

Montgomery's a fair sort of sailor.

And I can give you

enough of a crew.

Ouran! Gola!

Get away from those cages!

Come on now.

Let's unload this stuff.

The dogs first, then the monkeys

and then the cages.

Hurry it up.

I'll stay with Parker tonight
