A neglected gem.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A wonderful comedy which offers solid proof John Gilbert was more than capable of acting in a sound film.

Audience Reviews for The Captain Hates the Sea

Mediocre programmer was the end of the line for John Gilbert, the great silent matinee idol reduced to a supporting role. His part is minor and he doesn't look bad for a 50 year old man, the problem is that he was only 35 when this was filmed. Beside his involvement this is a minor picture with a muddled script that Milestone can't make come alive.
