A documentary filmed aboard a German U-Boat during the First World War , featuring footage of the capture and sinking of cargo ships and a private schooner.
Beautiful German spy Florence Vidor, caught between clueless Jack Holt and wily Sessue Hayakawa. The men are trying to protect information about a convoy in the Pacific where a new German force is rampaging -- remember, this is World War One, and the Japanese were on our side -- and Vidor is trying to find out about it, while fighting her feelings as Jack Holt keeps proposing to her. Well composed shots and skilled actors keep this one moving along. Charles Ogle is a bit over the top of Vidor's ruthless doctor/spymaster, but in a movie like this, some one has to be.
Short made to promote Canadian War Bonds.
