Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 1938 British sea melodrama Breakers Ahead isn't a remake of the 1935 film of the same name, although the two properties have much in common. Both films involve an attempted murder, and both are climaxed by a storm and shipwreck. In the later film, J. Fisher White plays a Cornish sailor whose wife Belle Chrystal is the jealous sort. Chrystal manages to drive a wedge between White and his brother Arthur Seaton. But the two siblings are reconciled when one saves the other's life during a disaster at sea. Vernon Sewell shot much of Breakers Ahead on location, both on and off-shore.
