‘Donovan’s Reef’ Movie Synopsis

Donovan’s Reef takes place on the French Polynesian island of Haleakaloha. Michael ‘Guns’ Donovan, Thomas ‘Boats’ Gilhooley, and Dr. William Dedham are old World War II navy buddies that have made the island their post-war paradise. Donovan’s Reef is the town’s watering hole where bragging, brawling, and full-blown mischief are the norm. However, the sudden arrival of Elizabeth Allen, a straight-laced Boston blue blood brings more turmoil than to the island than any of their barroom fisticuffs. Seeking the whereabouts of her long-estranged father, Elizabeth must confirm that her father is not of good moral character. Then she can assume control of her family’s shipping dynasty back home in the United States.
