Synopsis
MONSOON
When opportunity-seeking adventurer Mike Clancy (John Carradine) overhears South Seas captain Krogan (alias Captain Carruthers; Sidney Toler) describe the underwater location of his stolen $3 million in sunken gold treasure, Mike and his sidekick Jack (Frank Fenton) scramble to get to the fortune first. Joined by three women fleeing a murder scene, Mike and Jack take them along on their boat, but trouble soon begins to brew in paradise. Not only are both men interested in Marge Willison (Gale Sondergaard), one of their female passengers, but each has his own lecherous plan for the loot. But with the captain and his partner Johnny Pacific (Rick Vallin) hot on their trail, they may meet a watery grave before they can get their hands on the gold.

THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME
Sadistic hunting fanatic Count Zaroff (Leslie Banks) arranges the shipwreck of boats sailing off the coast of a remote island he inhabits. Tired of stalking animals, the Count has found a much more sinister sport to play—hunting human game. Zaroff invites shipwreck survivors Bob Rainsford (Joel McCrea), Martin Trowbridge (Robert Armstrong) and his sister Eve (Fay Wray) into his home, wines them, dines them, and then sends them out into the jungle with a knife and a head start before he begins to hunt them down. With no way off the island and only their wits to guide them, how will the hapless castaways survive Zaroff's "most dangerous game"?

THE AMAZING MR. X
Christine Faber (Lynn Bari), a grieving widow of two years, can't escape the memory of her dead husband. Then one night on the beach, Christine believes she hears her husband calling out to her from the ocean's surf. Things turn even more peculiar when she meets a strange mystic named Alexis (Turhan Bey), who seems to know things he can't possibly know. Hoping to speak with her husband, who passed in a car crash, Christine pays Alexis to make the communication happen. Meanwhile, Christine's fiancé Martin (Richard Carlson), who thinks Alexis is a phony, hires a private detective to expose him, but then unexplainable things begin to happen. Has Christine's deceased husband returned from the grave to haunt her, or is it all just an elaborate hoax?

SWAMP FIRE
Johnny Duval (Johnny Weissmuller) and Mike Kalavich (Larry "Buster" Crabbe), two rough and tough Louisiana Bayou adventurers—one a riverboat captain and shell-shocked war veteran, the other a vile and menacing trapper—go head to head in a battle for lovely Janet Hilton's (Virginia Grey) affections. No love is lost between the rivals, and things heat up when Mike sets the bayou ablaze with Johnny left to put the fire out. The foes finally square off, to settle their rivalry once and for all, in the dangerous waters of an alligator hole…who will survive and who will die?
