Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

The brother of John Ford, Francis Ford, directed this very low-budget serial from Poverty Row company Arrow starring Peggy O'Day and Western hero Jack Perrin. A South Sea Island adventure, The Fighting Skipper told the story of Skipper, a lovely young girl fighting for her inheritance, the map to a fortune hidden on Thunder Island. There is an evil half-sister (also played by O'Day) and an upstanding young man, who comes to Skipper's aid more than once during the serial's 15 chapters. The small cast also included William White and Francis Ford.
