The melody that Captain Steve Conway (John Ireland) often hums, whistles or plays on his consetina is called The Girl I left Behind Me, an evident illusion to a past relationship with the fiancé of his buddy, Johnny Phelan (Broderick Crawford). See more »
Broderick Crawford is shanghaied. Ellen Drew comes aboard to rescue him. Neither has luggage. The ship sails for a weeks-long voyage. So, where did all their squeaky-clean costume changes come from? See more »
If you like Broderick Crawford and his special kind of acting you will enjoy this film. This story is not the very best, but Crawford playing the role of Chief Engineer ( Johnny Phelan) on a cargo ship headed for Capetown gives you plenty of romance, drama and lots of problems on board a cargo ship. John Ireland, ( Steve Conway ) is the captain of the ship and also has one woman aboard his ship named Kitty Mellar, ( Ellen Drew) who is romantically involved with Johnny Phelan. However, Kitty over a period of time on board the ship falls in love with Steve Conway who rejects her statements of loving him and even marries her aboard his ship to Johnny Phelan. Edgar Buchanan, (Sam Bennett) gave a great supporting role in this tale of a cargo ship at sea with many problems and mostly between men a one woman.
