Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Long before becoming the talkie era's foremost screen sourpuss, Ned Sparks was seen as a double-dyed villain in such films as Money Talks. Sparks is cast as Lucius Fenton, a vicious rum-runner who meets his Waterloo in the form of go-getting advertising man Sam Starling (Owen Moore). Hoping to stir up business in a run-down resort, Sam converts the property into a health spa. He hires a charter boat to deliver customers to the spa, little suspecting that the boat's captain -- Lucius Fenton -- is using the job as a cover for his own crooked activities. When Fenton hijacks the boat with Sam's estranged wife Phoebe (Claire Windsor) as hostage, our hero races to the rescue.
