So what should you do if you think a woman is about to marry the wrong man? Kidnap her, of course!!
9 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Head Winds" is an insane film with a plot that could never be made today. It begins with Peter (House Peters) returning to San Francisco because he's learned that Patricia (Patsy Ruth Miller) is planning to marry Templeton...and Templeton is a fortune hunter. In addition, Peter has loved her for years but neglected to tell her. So, with the help of her brothers (who also don't like Templeton), he arranges her kidnapping instead of her marrying the jerk. Her brothers dress up in bandages and tell Patricia that they were in a bad automobile accident with Templeton. Templeton, they tell her, was badly hurt and would be bandaged and waiting for her on the honeymoon yacht. But it's really Peter in disguise and after marrying this bandaged man, they depart and she eventually realizes she's been kidnapped. Now with such an insane idea, how do you think this could REALLY end? Well, it doesn't end with Peter in prison for kidnapping...and the entire picture, though enjoyable, is just plain insane! It's also sexist and seems to espouse the notion that the end, indeed, does justify the means. A weird little silent film! Well acted..and weird!
