Lloyd Nolan and Robert Preston won't buckle under when J. Carrol Naish takes over a ship
J. Carrol Naish is a gangster who has escaped Alcatraz and must escape a dragnet. Disguised as an old lady, he comes on board a freighter, along with a bunch of his gang members. They will take over the ship and have it sail to a destination of their choosing.
Lloyd Nolan and Robert Preston are pals who constantly bicker and scrap with one another, usually over women. They've been demoted to this freighter because of one of their costly fights. They are wireless operators. Harry Carey is the ship's captain. Anthony Quinn has a small part as a gang member. Gail Patrick is Lloyd's love interest, but also Preston's.
Paramount had a good stable of actors under contract and the studio was skilled in turning out these snappy b-features. Too bad that their film library was not taken care of. We have to content ourselves with rather old prints that turn up from time to time, either from VHS releases or recordings from when they were shown on the old TV channels many years back.
This one is certainly watchable. The task is to fend off a lot of gangsters with guns who are not reluctant to shoot if need be.
