Storyline

Zenas Brewster (James Barton) is a seafaring man with a bad reputation. Notorious for his tempestuous nature, Brewster has earned the nickname of "Captain Hurricane." Brewster is smitten with neighbor Abbie Howland (Helen Westley), but she doesn't like his temperament. After a period of retirement, a bad investment puts Brewster back at work on the sea. And when fire overtakes his ship, Hurricane proves heroic, selflessly rescuing his crew from a grisly and deadly fate. Written by Bill Morrison

Flaccid rom-com
23 May 2004 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

This uninvolving light comedy stars James Barton as a curmudgeonly sea captain trying to win the hand of old maid Helen Westley. His efforts to channel the spirit of Lionel Barrymore are only partially successful, and the film doesn't get off the ground as a result. Barton shares a house with two other ineffectual old salts played by Henry Travers and Gene Lockhart (who reminds me of Edgar Kennedy), and beautiful young Helen Mack plays a young woman rescued by the three seaman during the film's stormy highlight. By the time Westley and Barton have come to terms with each other at film's end, fifteen plus narrative years have passed and you've spent 70 plus minutes waiting for something to happen. Look for young Lon Chaney Jr. in a small role.
