Oil field worker William Eythe returns to his hometown to discover his former girlfriend is going to marry an older cafe owner. Despite his best efforts to stay away, he is continually involved with the couple with tragic results.
Cappy Ricks, a crusty old sea captain, returns home from a long voyage to discover that his family and his business are in chaos--his daughter is set to marry a nitwit that he can't stand, and his future mother-in-law has taken over everything and is set to merge his business with that of a rival company. Worst of all, though, is that she--in the interests of "progress"--has completely automated his beloved ship, "Electra"!. He sets out to put an end to all this foolishness and comes up with what he thinks is a foolproof plan.Written by
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Cranky seafaring Walter Brennan (as "Cappy" Ricks) returns from a voyage to find his San Francisco household has become "slovenly and shiftless." He doesn't approve of pretty daughter Mary O'Brian (as Frankie) being engaged to "lily-livered" Frank Shields (as Waldo), the son of a rival. Betting pal Lyle Talbot (as Bill Peck) he can whip everyone into shape, Mr. Brennan takes them on a cruise. He wants to fake a marooning, and "shake off civilization for awhile." But the plan threatens to backfire when they become stranded for real. Brennan isn't his usually lovable old salt, in this plot and situation retread. Trying to boss Brennan around, Georgia Caine (as Amanda Peasely) has some good moments.
