Silent drama. Released as “THOSE WHO DARE”
Captain Martin Manning retires from the sea and buys a little home near the harbor where he can be in sight of his ship the “Swallow.” But a delegation of sailors from the nearby “Mariner’s Home” tell him the old sailors believe the ship’s presence is bringing them bad luck and order him to leave.
Refusing to do so without a fair hearing, Manning appears at the Home and tells the inmates the thrilling story of the “Swallow” – a story of plotting and intrigue; of a treacherously wounded captain and a villainous snake-worshipping crew ; of mutiny, murder, fighting and shipwreck. It is a stirring tale well told. And it wins the approval of even the old sailors themselves who hasten to assure the Captain that he is a sailor after their own hearts, and they are proud to have him and the “Swallow” near them.
