Trivia

Roland West's last film. He took a few years off from the industry and planned to return in the late 1930s, but in 1935 his girlfriend, actress Thelma Todd, was murdered in a restaurant that she and West ran in Santa Monica. He vowed never to return to Hollywood and for the remainder of his life (he died in 1952), he never did. See more »

Meet The 3 Mister Hawkes
27 July 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Corsair (from 1931) is a real moldie-oldie, that, in spite of its obvious age and creakiness, still manages to be fairly entertaining, in the long run.

This 83-year-old Comedy/Romance/Adventure story tells the roundabout tale of how dashing, college, football hero, Johnny Hawkes, meets cheeky, spoilt, heiress, Alison Corning.

Before long Hawkes finds himself captain of the Corsair (a sleek, high-speed gunboat).

Imminent danger lurks everywhere once Hawkes and his crew begin dealing with ruthless, modern-day pirates involved in big-time liquor smuggling.

With its story set mainly in the West Indies, Corsair (at 72 minutes) certainly had its fair share of high-seas action, violence and double-crosses.

This fast-paced story starred blond beauty, Thelma Todd (murdered at 29) and early-talkies heart-throb, Chester Morris (suicide at 69).
