Popular Universal leading man Frank Mayo is put through his customary paces in The Altar Stairs. Mayo plays a rugged ship's captain who comes to the rescue of a group of South Sea natives. The locals have embraced Christianity, but a gang of unscrupulous opportunists have shown up, hoping to exploit this new-found reliogisity. Mayo sets things aright, winning native girl Dagmar Godowsky in the process. Based on a novel by G. B. Lancaster, The Altar Stairs is breezily directed by western-movie vet Lambert Hillyer.
