~Plot Synopsis~
When a young man confesses to theft, his wealthy and influential father has him "shanghaied" aboard
one of the company ships in this silent melodrama starring Creighton Hale and 1924 WAMPAS BABY
STAR Dorothy Mackaill. Mackaill, a former "Follies" girl, plays Linda Harper, whose father (Alec B.
Francis) is falsely accused of the theft actually committed by gambler Billy Craig (Hale). The latter
confesses but to shield his ailing wife (Fanny Midgley), Craig, Sr. (Ralph Lewis) has him "abducted."
Escaping this predicament easily enough, Billy is warned by old man Harper that Linda has gone to
see nasty money-lender Glenn Hayden (Richard Tucker) in an attempt to cover the stolen money.
Billy goes after her and arrives just in time to save the girl from a fate worse than death. Written by
the husband-and-wife team of Hope Loring and Louis D. Lighton, this routine melodrama was
directed by Phil Rosen, a typical Hollywood professional who would go on churning out genre films of
all kinds until shortly before his death in 1951.
