Exciting John Gilbert Sea Yarn
16 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes only the French 62-minute version survives (originally 85 minutes) and the film starts without the opening scene but this is still an exciting sea yarn about battling bootleggers and features two great stars: John Gilbert and Joan Crawford.

Gilbert is a bootlegger who kidnaps Crawford and her fiancé in an attempt to escape the Coast Guard. But he starts to fall for Crawford after his boat is boarded by even WORSE bootleggers led by lecherous Ernest Torrence. The men begin a battle over Crawford until the surprising ending.

The film was a hit in 1927 but is often credited with being the first film on which Gilbert wrangled with LB Mayer. Gilbert helped write the screenplay but was unhappy when key scenes were cut; he also disliked the ending. This was an important starring assignment for Crawford since Gilbert was #1 at the box office at this time.

The scene featuring Eileen Percy, Dorothy Sebastian, and Gwen Lee is lost.

Still worth a look.
