Also known as Darkened Skies, this early independent talkie boasted an impressive (for its time) cast. Evelyn Brent, on loan from Paramount, stars as Juanita Morgan, who falls in love with dashing rum-runner Captain Pedro Real (Wallace MacDonald). For Juanita's sake, Pedro promises to give up his life of crime and settle down to married life. But first he must finish one last run, and to do that he needs Juanita's help. Her job is to warn him of any approaching prohibition agents by waving a lantern from the coast. Alas, government agent Nelson (Larry Steele) extinguishes Juanita's light (hence the film's title) and captures the nonplused Pedro.
