Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In the first of his three serials for Columbia Pictures, Larry "Buster" Crabbe starred as Captain Silver who, with his crew, gets involved with rescuing John Whitney (Milton Kibbee), a man with a certain knowledge of sunken treasure. Whitney has been kidnapped by a mysterious pirate known as The Admiral (Robert Barron), who rules over the ubiquitous South Seas Island. The girl in the case is Whitney's lovely daughter (Pamela Blake). Based on both a comic strip and a radio series, The Sea Hound was produced by the corner-cutting Sam Katzman and looked it. A former MGM starlet, brunette leading lady Pamela Blake was earlier known as Adele Pearce, her real name, apparently.
