Synopsis by Hal Erickson
James Barton plays a salty old sea captain on the verge of retirement, forced to return to the sea when his funds run out. Planning to stay with his ship only long enough to pay his mortgage, Barton finds himself on the bounding main a lot longer than expected due to bad weather and unexpected delays. When his ship catches fire, Barton rescues his crew and guides them to shore. He returns to his Cape Cod home a hero, and the mortgage is forgotten. Likewise forgotten is Captain Hurricane, which disappeared shortly after its 1935 release and is seldom resurrected for TV--except in the wee small hours on cable's American Movie Classics.
