Hobart Bosworth is (and this may shock you) a sadistic ship captain. Bessie Love is the little castaway who warms his heart and awakens fatherly feelings. But when the captain discovers that poor Bessie just may be the daughter of his enemy, things start to get mean. Love and Bosworth are delightful in their father-daughter relationship and the seafaring scenes are swell but predictable plot prevents this film from being a classic.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
It turns out that Love is Bosworth’s daughter. Suitably ashamed, he makes amends.
If it were a dessert it would be: Pear and Cranberry Fruit Pizza. Sweet and sour goodness on a bland crust.
