Not Many Redeeming Qualities

Boris plays a sea captain who must work extra hard because he is on the ropes financially. He arrives after a bunch of snakes get on board his ship (sound familiar), killing a couple crewmen. He jokes about how stupid these men were. We find out that the good captain is a gold digger who used his wife's money to get a boat which was destroyed. Now that she has no connection to Daddy's money, he treats her like dirt. When he finds out there is a rich widow in town who fancies him, things take a bad turn for his bride. She is so in love with him and he is horrible. The story eventually descends into a kind of trite ghost story, but Karloff is inimitable in his performance, despite a pretty lame script.
