That marvelous old barnstormer Hobart Bosworth stars in this early Columbia talkie as a rough-and-tumble sea captain named Hurricane. Double-crossed by his no-good business partners, Hurricane is stranded on a remote island, along with his mutinous crew. By way of contrast, virtuous seaman Johnny Mack Brown is introduced into the narrative. Brown's function in the proceedings is made obvious by the goo-goo eyes of sweet heroine Leila Hyams. Apparently, Hurricane was designed to allow the Columbia audio technicians (including future director Edward Bernds) to test out a variety of newly developed sound effects.
