A Watery Triangle
14 June 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

George Bancroft and William "Stage" Boyd are merchant officers for a shipping line, who fight over everything, especially Jessie Royce Landis. Boyd goes to visit her when they put in to Havana. Bancroft cuts him out by promising to get her a cabin on the ship they're officers on, heading to Rio, where she can make some money as a singer. When he gets the master's spot on a freighter, he tells her he can't do it: no passengers. Boyd sneaks her on, then he and Landis lie about who broke the rules, which gets Bancroft fired.

It's a boisterous buddy comedy from Paramount. The sound is still a bit primitive, and Bancroft can't speak without roaring, which is a bit off-putting, but there's an exciting sequence of a storm at sea in which directors Rowland Lee and Louis Gasnier seem to think that if they drown all the actors, studio head Adolph Zukor will be happy about the salaries saved.

Miss Landis was making her first movie, and her last for 19 years. While she's good in the role, I guess once she got the water out of her lungs, she decided she was less likely to be killed on Broadway. She did very well by herself, but her one starring film role shows an actress who might have done pretty well by the movies, if the directors didn't kill her.
