Beneath the 12-Mile Reef

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Wagner and Moore replay Romeo and Juliet in Tarpon Springs, Florida, with rival sponge fishermen standing in for the Montagues and Capulets. One of the earliest CinemaScope pictures, it looks better than it ought to, and Bernard Herrmann provides an eerie score. But it's best remembered for the incredibly young Robert Wagner scrapping with an octopus (you won't get that in staged Shakespeare).
