In the waning days of WWI, a U.S. "Mystery Ship," sets sail for the coast of Spain towing a submarine. Their mission is to find and sink a U-boat that has been especially effective in attacking Allied shipping. Posing as a harmless schooner, the mystery ship is in fact fitted with a formidable gun capable of sinking a U-boat. Stopping in the Canary Islands to refuel, the crew interacts with locals involved with Germans, and with Germans themselves, including the sister of the U-Boat commander, who is lurking offshore waiting for the coming battle.

German u-boat plays cat and mouse with allied gunboat in WW1
Rarely have I seen such stilted, hammy, and just plain bad acting. There didn't appear to be a professional performer in the whole picture. And the dialogue! Gad! The skipper of the allied vessel came off more like a cheerleader than a leader of men. I still enjoyed the film; even with all the cornball humor from the brainless naval crew. If their collective brains could be rendered into gasoline, there wouldn't be enough to run a termite's chainsaw. Fairly good action yarn for such an old picture.
