Synopsis by Hal Erickson
William Desmond stars as "The Sea Panther," a gentleman pirate plying his trade in Days of Olde. Though ruthless with his enemies, the hero is at heart a romantic, demanding that his fellow pirates treat their female prisoners with dignity and respect. Eventually, Desmond is overthrown in a mutiny and clapped into irons. He is rescued by heroine Mary Warren, who disguises herself as a boy for the occasion. Critics agreed that the acting in The Sea Panther was vastly superior to the film's rather seedy production values.
