Robert Wagner surfaces as a diver who is after underwater treasures and who tracks down the daughter of his murdered French partner in a small French seaport town. Drowned in pulp dialogue and plotting, “Deep Trouble” splashes around in shallow waters.

Madigan (Wagner) makes a successful play for the daughter, Alice (Isabelle Pasco), who responds at least for a night. The ample Wagner, noting that diving keeps him in shape, adequately fulfills the role.

On the other side of town, uptown underworld villain Campana (a wasted Ben Cross whose role doesn’t test him) serves the plot when he’s blamed for the death of Alice’s father. The gendarmes are repped by young Inspector Valence (Jean-Yves Berteloot), who conveniently yearns for Alice.

To connect the principals, writer James C. Hirsch strews stolen diamonds that are secretly recovered by Madigan while Valence roots around for them.

Pasco’s off her stride as the actioner’s heroine, but Berteloot supplies a dollop of Gallic charm as the policeman who has to learn to be daring.

While director Armand Mastroianni delivers a trying vidpic, the production values don’t much help. Jacques Renoir’s lensing, including a car chase on dangerous curves, is unspectacular. Daniel Cahn’s editing is OK, and Arthur B. Rubinstein’s score is so-so.
