Trivia

In the 1925 movie The Lost World, there is a shot of Piccadilly Circus in London in which the London Pavilion has a neon sign advertising FRANK LLOYD'S "SEA HAWK". This is seen after the intertitle "Later -- In London", which immediately follows the expedition's South America adventure. See more »

Milton Sills
18 June 2010 | by Linda_SSee all my reviews

I joined this film in progress on TCM earlier this month. Well this film kept me riveted to my seat. Milton Sills' performance is so impressive, so dashing, so heroic that I was completely enchanted. The magic of movie-making. While this film has none of the advantages of modern special effects and lighting and so forth it is nevertheless a slam-bang, rip-roaring, adventure romance. There is something in this film that permits one to fully enter within the story, to suspend disbelief and to experience, if for that brief time, a land of fantasy that entertains as well as elevates. Superlatives are not hyperbole when it comes to The Sea Hawk.
