Alberta Vaughn Rules!
19 November 2001 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

Thrills and chills aboard a tramp steamer. This exciting shipboard adventure is notable for several reasons, not the least of which is that it was the great Alberta Vaughn's last film; she is terrific here, with some comic mugging worthy of Fanny Brice. Richard Talmadge is his usual good self, with some amazing stunts and that weird, ever-present little-boy grin of his. Also fun is the grimy location shooting aboard the ship; talk about your atmosphere! Early Talkie Fun!
