Molly's Many Fans Will Enjoy Her Outing on the High Seas
28 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Although he had an excellent voice, silent star Edmund Burns displayed little charisma in his early sound features and was soon playing uncredited bit roles. In Poverty Row's "Sea Devils" (1930), his last star part, he is partnered by Molly O'Day who, despite her diminutive size and somewhat chunky thighs, carries the film on her own personality-plus shoulders. True, she receives a bit of assistance from director Joseph Levering who makes the most of his actual locations, and perennial villain Walter Long who hams it up agreeably as a (you guessed it!) mutinous mate. Way-down-the-cast's Jim Donnelly has a major role as the ship's captain but doesn't convince us he could handle the Staten Island ferry, let alone a barque on the high seas. A talented chimp steals scenes right, left and center from all but Miss O'Day who is more than a match for any simian interlopers. Although it runs only 58 minutes, the movie is somewhat overloaded with extraneous scenes. Not that I'm complaining as one of these interludes features none other than popular silent comedian, Fatty Karr, who heavies it up most delightfully here as a bellicose barkeeper.
