Interesting little B/W oldie:Dr. Bernard finds out his wife is sailing for the states with the super wealthy Mr. Stevenson-the good Dr. secures passage as ships surgeon to confront his wife. Meanwhile we meet Millie who only wants to live life on the top deck,but has to find a way up there from 3rd class,she first gets help from Mr. Thorndyke who used to live that life but is now busted out.(he is asked why he is traveling 3rd class and his reply is "because there is no 4th class")Millie does work her way up,and when finally in the company of a gem merchant she has to make a decision between the offered rhinestones or diamonds.Back to the main plot line,when the DR.,his wife and Mr. Stevenson meet, Stevenson is the one pretending to take some high moral road-which is absurd because he has spent the whole film chasing after some opera diva he met on board. And all the while Nurse Morgan does her duties and quietly suffers in the background of this 5 sided triangle.I have to say,I always enjoy C.Aubrey Smith's performances in any film I have seen him in-here he plays Mr. Thorndyke, and he is wonderful. The female leads are all lovely-you ought to read Alice White's bio on IMDb-quite a story.
