Every man for himself
Henry Wilcoxon (Jimmy) owns a small ship – the Apache - but it's in a bit of a state and he hasn't any cargoes to carry. His girlfriend Carole Landis (June) strikes up a friendship with wealthy Onslow Stevens (Carl) who takes an interest in Wilcoxon's boat. He commissions it for a trip to South America, but on the way, an ulterior motive is revealed.
This is a good film that cracks along and it has a good cast. All except Kathleen Howard (Maggie) who is dreadful and puts on an atrocious fake Scottish accent to make things worse. Thankfully, she disappears from the story early on. The majority of the story is set at sea on board a "mystery sea raider". This film deals with Nazis at sea and it is realistically done – the Germans are indeed very efficient.
The quality of the film I saw wasn't great – recorded onto DVD from a video copy – but it was still an entertaining 73 minutes. Given her short life, I always take extra interest when a Carole Landis film shows up.
