"I didn't like the Singapore picture at all - both Ramon Navarro and I were terribly miscast."

Cast: Ramon Novarro, Joan Crawford (as Priscilla Crowninshield), Ernest Torrence, Frank Currier, Dan Wolheim, Duke Martin,
A sea worthy adventure about two brothers, Joel Shore (Ramon Novarro) and Mark Shore (Ernest Torrence) who both love the same girl, Priscilla Crowninshield (Joan). After announcing their engagement without her permission, Mark sails for Singapore with his brothers and leaves behind a very angry, unconsenting fiancee in Priscilla (Joan). Priscilla's (Joan) dismay of the announcement sends Mark (Ernest Torrence) into a spiraling pit of drunkenness, ending in a fatal but albeit victorious battle with the mutineers. Mark (Ernest Torrence) dies in his brother Joel's (Ramon Novarro) arms, his only dying wish to promise to love and take care of his beloved Priscilla (Joan). The true lovers are then reunited.

Film Daily, had this to say, "Ramon Novarro miscast as tough sea dog. Should have played him up on the Romeo stuff. Joan
Crawford petite and always an alluring picture."
