S.O.S was the last of six films directed in 1927 by Carmine Gallone. The story gets off to a lively start with a spectacular collision at sea between two enormous ocean liners. As the ship sinks, philandering husband Alfrons Fryland and his new bride Liane Haid are rescued separately, each believing that the other has drowned. Heading to Africa to forget his troubles, Fryland proves easy prey for vampish Gina Manes. Meanwhile, the grief-stricken Haid accepts a job as a female clown with a travelling circus. During a native insurrection, Fryland and Haid are reunited -- but Fryland doesn't recognize his heavily made-up spouse. Wounded in the fray, the husband is rescued by his "lost" wife, at which point everything is explained.
