For 400 years, the Fosdyck family were the only fishermen in a tiny British coastal village. Now, the Fosdyck's predominance is threatened by the arrival of a new clan, the Lunns. Patriarch Uncle Isaac Fosdyck (J. Fisher White) regards the Lunns as invaders, declaring them persona non grata in his household. Now comes the BIG SURPRISE: Ruth Fosdyck (Geraldine Fitzgerald) falls in love with Marney Lynn (John Garrick). After a minimum of muss-and-fuss, the two families bury the hatchet and elect to share their piscatorial plunder. Perhaps the original Leo Walmsey novel Three Fevers was more innovative than this by-the-numbers film version.
