Old-timer Hobart Bosworth heads the cast of the independently produced Wolves of the Sea. Bosworth is cast as Captain Wolf Hansen, the leader of an expedition to recover a fortune in jewels which was lost in a recent shipwreck. Mutinous seaman Snoden (Warner Richmond) intends to claim the gems for himself and kill everyone who stands in his way. But Hansen's first mate William Rand (Dirk Thane) prevents this, winning the hand of heroine Nadine Miller (Jean Carmen) in the process. A crazy quilt of stock footage, flimsy sets and fluffed dialogue, Wolves of the Sea is directed by Elmer Clifton, of Reefer Madness fame, who does as well as possible under the circumstances.
