Fun Size Review: Captain January (1924)

Hobart Bosworth plays an old lighthouse keeper who has adopted the castaway, Baby Peggy. Local do-gooders are annoyed at his unorthodox parenting but he and little Peggy love one another. However, what will happen when Peggy’s real family comes to claim her? Sweet but never simpering. Heart-warming but never trite. This is family entertainment that the grown-ups can enjoy too. Highly recommended.


How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

The little girl’s family rediscovers her but she is unhappy without the only father she has ever known so he is hired to captain the family yacht.

If it were a dessert it would be: Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Warm and comforting with a dash of sea salt.
