Mediocre film with one exciting ten minute sequence

The film had absolutely no camera movement except for the thrilling and well-edited whaling sequence occurring 54 minutes into the film and lasting ten minutes. This was a documentary style sequence covering the chase and capture of a sperm whale. The rest of the film had no camera movement at all (of course not, it wasn't until Murnau's LAST LAUGH two years later that cinematography as we know it was born). The film itself is typical silent screen melodrama with a combination of exaggerated acting and naturalistic acting. The stand out is the 17 year old Clara Bow making an impression based on energy alone - she has a small supporting role as the old whaler's rambunctious granddaughter. For the rest the story, acting, direction, editing is as dull as paint and a crashing bore. What little interest it holds is due to the sequences devoted to whaling and processing of the whale by-products (oil and ambergris).
