One doesn't expect much from British programmers of the 1930s, so it comes as a relief that River Wolves has a great deal of entertainment value. Michael Hogan plays a sea captain who aspires to become a novelist. Hogan decides to soak up "local flavor" in a small waterfront community. He and fellow writer John Mills (in one of his earliest movie appearances) find themselves rivals for the affections of innkeeper's daughter Helga Moray. Both Hogan and Moray come to the rescue when Mills is threatened by crooks. River Wolves was based on the Edward Dignon - Geoffrey Swaffer stage play The Lion and the Lamb.
