Assistant director Nat G. Deverich was almost killed during the scene showing the destruction of a ship at sea, which was filmed off the coast of Monterey, CA, and was not--as was reported in the press at the time--a miniature shot in a tank at the studio. See more »
Pickford plays an Italian lighthouse keeper who falls in love with a man washed on shore who turns out to be a German spy. Although she has some moments of comedy, this is an adult story about love and redemption. Well written and directed by Frances Marion. The film also stars Marion's husband, Fred Thomson, as the spy. Certainly one of Pickford's best efforts.
