Captain Carroll needs to hire, the the worst way, a first-mate for his three-masted cargo ship, the "Marigold," sailing to Manila and Singapore, and does so by hiring Woolf Barstow, whose track record includes the loss of three ships. Barstow brings along his equally-unsavory confederate, "Scar" Murray, as the boatswain. Bartsow intends to take over the ship, and also has his lustful eye on the captain's daughter, Mary. He poisons the captain, drowns the second-mate, Miller, and has a fake cargo arranged by Wong, a Chinese merchant who operates a waterfront dive where Barstow's true-blue sweetheart, Concha Renaldo, dances. As a replacement for the 2nd-mate, he hires a derelict who is handy with his fists, Steve Trent, and Trent brings along his drunken-sot friend, Bloater, as the ship's cook. Concha, spurned by Barstow, is a stowaway on the ship. The pot is boiling. Anchor's aweigh. Written by Les Adams <>

Like Long John Silver
26 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Out Of Singapore a small independent film that sadly had some real potential. Not necessarily a major studio, but even a place like RKO could have given Out Of Singapore a few production values to make this story a classic.

Some elements of Treasure Island are present here as Noah Beery like Long John Silver is signed on to a ship Out Of Singapore. Not as a cook like Silver, but a first mate. Beery has a track record of having ships sunk out from under him. That should have sent warning bells off, but they sign him any way.

Of course Beery's been doing the sinking and robbing the cargoes along with Montagu Love and a band of cutthroats. But Beery makes a big mistake when he overthrows girlfriend Dorothy Burgess for his captain's daughter Miriam Seegar.

A brutal before the Code sea saga that had a lot of potential wasted with a rotten production.
