Weldon Heyburn never did become Republic's answer to Clark Gable, though he always aimed to please. In Sea Racketeers, Heyburn is cast as Jim, a courageous Coast Guard officer whose legions of lady friends includes the pert and perky Pat (Jeanne Madden). Jim leaves the ladies behind when he takes on the challenge of rounding up a gang of seafaring crooks who use a floating casino as a cover for their piratical activities. J. Carroll Naish plays Durant, head of the modern-day buccaneers, and he proves quite a worthy adversary for the plucky Pat. Hoydenish comedy relief is handled by the vivacious Dorothy McNulty, who within a year would change her name to Penny Singleton and headline Columbia's "Blondie" series.
