Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
A typical silent programmer, this Universal "Jewel" production features House Peters as a millionaire yachtsman whose girlfriend (Patsy Ruth Miller) falls for a fortune hunter (Richard Travers). Peters arranges for the girl to be brought aboard his yacht where, swathed in bandages, he manages to convince her that he is Travers. A wedding ceremony is performed but when she learns the truth, Patsy accuses Peters of kidnapping. Attempting to flee in a decrepit rowboat, the girl is rescued in the nick of time by Peters' Chinese crew members (Togo Yamamotoand George Kuwa) and returned to the yacht. Near death from exposure, Patsy is nursed back to health by Peters, whom she forgives. Head Winds was directed by Herbert Blaché, the former husband of pioneering female director Alice Guy-Blaché.
