Director Charles Hutchinson makes lemonade from the poverty-row lemon Out with the Tide. Cullen Landis plays a newspaper reporter who is framed for murder. He finds an unexpected ally in the form of Dorothy Dawn, the victim's daughter. Together, Landis and Dorothy head to Shanghai, where they corner the real killer. Despite its low budget, Out with the Tide is graced with several above-average talents in the supporting cast, including former leading man Craufurd Kent, comedy star Jimmy Aubrey and oriental character player Sojin.
