~Dead Men Tell No Tales~
~Plot Synopsis~
"Dead men tell no tales" is the creed of pirate Joaquin Santos (Gustav von Seyffertitz) who enlists
Squire Rattray (Holmes Herbert) in his plot to plunder the gold shipment from the Lady Jermyn and
then destroy the ship and its crew. Because of his love for Santos' daughter Eve (Catherine Calvert),
Rattray reluctantly consents to pick up the villains and their loot in his private yacht. Among the
unsuspecting passengers aboard the doomed ship is George Cole (Percy Marmont), who also falls in
love with Eve. At the appointed time, the ship is blown up, and everyone is lost except for Cole, who
begins to search for Eve. He discovers them secreted at Rattray's and after several close calls, both he
and Eve escape and are reunited at last.
