Trivia

The 1922 Broadway play upon which this was based, "Shore Leave", was later adapted as a musical play, "Hit the Deck" (1927), with music by Vincent Youmans. That was later produced as an early sound musical film, Hit the Deck (1929). In 1936, it was again adapted as a movie musical with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers but with different music & lyrics, this time by Irving Berlin, Follow the Fleet (1936). In 1955, yet another remake was made, this time returning to the original Vincent Youmans 1927 Broadway musical score, Hit the Deck (1955). See more »

Nice Romantic Film
18 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This offbeat romance stars Richard Barthelmess as a tough sailor named Smith who happens to meet a mousy dressmaker (Dorothy Mackaill) while on shore leave. He's determined not to get "involved" and she pines away in a small New England seaport village.

The story skips around a lot, but it seems she owns a sailing ship that is aground on the mud in the Ganges River. She plots to get the ship sailing again with Barthelmess as the skipper. A perfect union. But he reacts badly and avoids all "rich women" even though, years later, she throws a party for all the Smiths in port. She has no idea what his first name is. He doesn't remember her at all. After a few fights he finally understands that she is not rich. So he bypasses re-enlisting, works his way back to her, and all problems are solved in time for the clinch.

SHORE LEAVE was a Broadway play that featured James Rennie and Frances Starr. This is a change-of-pace role for Barthelmess, since the character is not quite heroic. Mackaill, a former Ziegfeld girl, is probably too pretty to be pining away in a small village. Yet the stars are very effective together and keep the film interesting despite its cheap production values. The supporting cast has little to do.

Worth a look.
