Movie Info

A typical Poverty Row potboiler, this minor silent action melodrama featured Jacqueline Logan as a young woman searching for her wayward brother (Arthur Rankin), who is falsely accused of murder and on the lam. Along the way, Miss Logan encounters untold dangers from a maniacal Chinese warlord (the always watchable Sojin) and falls in love with a handsome ship's captain (Jack Mower). A 1922 WAMPAS Baby Star, the beautiful Jacqueline Logan had played a very alluring Mary Magdalene in Cecil B. DeMille's The King of Kings (1927), after which her career inexplicably went into a free fall. A late entry in the "yellow peril" cycle, Ships of the Night was penned by prolific genre specialist Arthur Hoerl.
