A yachting party of rich socialites sailing from Shanghai falls into the hand of a mutineering crew, and are subsequently at the mercy of the merciless whims of a half-mad ship's steward who has gained control of the water supply. That is with the exception of Lady Daley who is quite indifferent to the whole affair. Written by

A group of wealthy socialites take a cruise on their yacht but a storm cripples the ship, making it possible for the disgruntled crew to mutiny.
Flat-nosed Louis Wolheim does his best in the role of an insane crewman with dreams of power but his exaggerated performance makes this dull film laughable and only mildly entertaining. The acting is stagy, the story melodramatic, and the early sound technology makes for long stretches of awkward silence. Unless you're interested in someone from the cast, or want to see how bad some early talkies could be, skip this one.
