| Pretty good--and it just goes to show you how pretty Harry Langdon can be in a dress!
I agree with the other review that says that this film isn't among Harry Langdon's best, though it is a nice and reasonably funny short comedy. In this one, Harry gets mixed up with a thief aboard a ship and the crook is looking to kill him to protect his racket. So in fear of his life, Harry dresses like a lady and the Captain is quite taken with him/her. I thought this was pretty funny and noticed that Harry looked amazingly at home in the costume! Naturally, being a Harry Langdon film, by the end, Harry is able to capture the bad guy and become the hero--a rather familiar theme in his films (such as in PLAIN CLOTHES). Despite this familiarity, the film is well worth seeing and is about an average example of his work with Sennett in the mid-1920s.

By the way, the title is a play on the popular Rafael Sabatini novel of the day "THE SEA HAWK", though the movie really has nothing to do with the novel or the film versions of this wonderful Sabatini book. Though out of print and hard to find, it's a marvelous swashbuckling novel.
