In 1932 MGM wanted to remake the property as a showcase for Jean Harlow. They tried borrowing Victor McLaglen for the lead, but Fox refused. Metro then announced Clark Gable as star, but ultimately the film was not made. See more »
I recently purchased this video from an independent distributor and found out there are only a few copies left of this silent film on VHS. The VHS version is 62 minutes long, transferred from a French print; the original 1927 version was 85 minutes. John Gilbert plays a bootlegger who kidnaps Joan Crawford and her fiance on his boat and eventually the two fall in love with each other, but things happen that cause a rift in their relationship. It is interesting to see a very young Crawford in a small role and her presence is what makes the film interesting, but in general it is a strange and muddled story, likely due to the fact that important pieces are missing. Again, only valuable for film history reasons, due to the fact that the original film no longer exists. 2 1/2 out of 4 for this one.
