Beneath the 12-mile Reef

Genre: Action/Adventure, Drama; Starring: Terry Moore, Robert Wagner; MPAA Rating: Unrated

You’d never recognize Wagner in one of his first movies — and that’s probably okay by him. Sporting a frizzy hairdo, he’s laughably earnest as a Greek sponge fisherman in love with a rival diving magnate’s daughter (the even stiffer Moore). Maybe anybody would bomb who had to exclaim — twice — ”I’m a very beautiful young man!” A top grosser in its day (it was one of the first CinemaScope features), Beneath the 12-Mile Reef is beyond soggy now, despite the impeccable transfer it gets here.
