Ralph Emerson plays a lowly crewman on a ferryboat who rescues Olive Borden from the advances of a lacivious millionaire. Out of gratitude, Borden marries Emerson, living with her new husband in a tiny riverfront bungalow. Despite her marital status, Borden can't seem to shake herself of would-be rapists; now she must fend off Emerson's so-called buddy Duke Martin. Emerson comes to the rescue once more in an excitingly photographed finale. Albany Night Boat makes excellent use of its Upstate New York locations; the film in fact looks far better than it actually is.
