Three of a Kind - Sharks' Treasure

Eccentric charter skipper Jim Carnahan and his team of hard-luck dreamers battle sharks, bandits and their own greed to recover sunken treasure off the coast of Honduras. (Chris Stone, IMDB)

Actor Cornel Wilde began his acting career in 1935 and twenty years later formed his own production company. He produced, directed and starred in a number of his own films over the next fifteen years. In the early '70s he took a break from the cinema, taking a couple of TV roles, before returning in 1975 with Shark's Treasure which was made to capitalize on the success of Jaws. Wilde wrote, produced, directed and starred in the film as well as writing the theme song, Money, Money, which was sung by Ken "Postman Pat" Barrie. He might have done the catering too for all I know!

This American one-sheet poster is signed "Koslow". I'm guessing this is Howard Koslow (1924 - 2016) who is probably best known for painting various series of stamps for the United States Postal Service. There was also another one-sheet with a photo from the film but this one is much nicer (Click for larger image).



Here's an Italian poster (artist unknown). The title translates as Between Tiger Sharks and Desperados.




Finally, here's the artwork used on the home video release (artist unknown).
