Storyline

The fourth and last of the George A. Hirliman-produced films starring George O'Brien (preceded by "Daniel Boone", "Park Avenue Logger" and "Hollywood Cowboy") that were distributed by RKO Radio. Hirliman sold O'Brien's contract to RKO, which then produced 18 series westerns starring O'Brien that ended when O'Brien went into the Navy at the outbreak of WW II. Long-time (past and future) O'Brien director David Howard served as Hirliman's Associate Producer on this film. "Windjammer" finds O'Brien as a subpoena server ordered to serve a subpoena on Brandon Evans (The Commondore) for a senate inquiry or lose his job. Posing as a playboy, he boards the Commodore's yacht during a yacht race, and the yacht is wrecked by a gun-running windjammer commanded by Captain Morgan (William Hall.) All hands are picked up by the windjammer, including the Commodore's daughter (played by Constance Worth, at her blonde, plumpish best) and put to work as galley slaves and such, but it isn't long before ...

Goofs

When the question is asked whether the balloon spinnaker should be raised because the wind is too strong, the sail above their heads is almost flat because there is not enough wind to fill it. In addition, earlier shots have show the yacht to be carrying all sails possible. See more »

A Yaght of Fun!

Short, entertaining sea yarn with George O'Brien as a state attorney general's right hand man sent to serve a subpoena on a tycoon, only to find himself a prisoner along with the millionaire and his daughter aboard the ship of an arms smuggler, bound for Macao. The action is pretty good, along with the characterizations - particularly Hall as the roguish, mad-eyed Capt. Morgan (there even seems to be a tongue-in-cheek reference to the pirate Henry Morgan!) Blond Constance Worth is cute as Betty, playing the she-hates-him/she-loves-him cliché for all it's Worth. Overall a decently spent hour.

5/10 stars, check it out.
