When a young man confesses to theft, his wealthy and influential father has him "shanghaied" aboard one of the company ships in this silent melodrama starring Creighton Hale and 1924 WAMPAS BABY STAR Dorothy Mackaill. Mackaill, a former "Follies" girl, plays Linda Harper, whose father (Alec B. Francis) is falsely accused of the theft actually committed by gambler Billy Craig (Hale). The latter confesses but to shield his ailing wife (Fanny Midgley), Craig, Sr. (Ralph Lewis) has him "abducted." Escaping this predicament easily enough, Billy is warned by old man Harper that Linda has gone to see nasty money-lender Glenn Hayden (Richard Tucker) in an attempt to cover the stolen money. Billy goes after her and arrives just in time to save the girl from a fate worse than death. Written by the husband-and-wife team of Hope Loring and Louis D. Lighton, this routine melodrama was directed by Phil Rosen, a typical Hollywood professional who would go on churning out genre films of all kinds until shortly before his death in 1951.
