~Plot Synopsis~
Thomas Meighan was appropriately cast in this ocean-bound romance based on the novel A Light to
command from its drunken captain, Svenson (Gus Weinberg). Svenson is then given charge of a yacht
belonging to Mary Brent (Lila Lee), the daughter of wealthy ship-owner Rufus Brent (Charles Abbe).
Bedford puts him off the boat and takes command once again. During the trip, Bedford and Mary fall
in love and they secretly marry. Brent wants to get rid of Bedford, so he gives him the assignment of
taking an old ship to South America, but Mary stows away. Brent chases after the ship in his yacht,
but it is disabled in a storm. Bedford tows the yacht, then presents Brent with a bill. This insult, on
top of Bedford's marriage to Mary, infuriates Brent., but he eventually comes to appreciate his
son-in-law, and offers him a partnership in his firm.
