The Sea God is an early sound melodrama about two men vying for Fay Wray and wealth in the South Pacific. I bought this DVD in my unhealthy quest to see every Fay Wray film available, and I was pleasantly surprised that this was a fairly entertaining little film. Good locations, decent direction and photography (in spots), and a couple of twists made it well worth its short 75 minute running time. It's a bit creaky, and some of the acting doesn't hold up well, but overall not a bad effort. Fay looks great as the object of affection of the two men. There is even a scene where she is snatched from a boat by hostile dark skinned cannibals ala King Kong.
The final word is a good film, especially for Fay Wray fans like me.
