The Confident Lawyer, the Captain's Daughter, and the Bootleg Gun Runner

The star of this adventure had a nickname in Hollywood: The Chest. No, fellows, I am not talking about Constance Worth. George O’Brien, son of the police chief of San Francisco, was a tall, ruggedly built muscular man with a huge chest and unique personality. He could calmly threaten the bad guy with soft-spoken words while smiling innocently into the blaggard’s eyes.

But don’t let his soft voice dripping with inexhaustible confidence fool you, he was a fighter through and through. As a teenager he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and fought in World War One. When World War Two broke out, he was back in the Navy serving as a beachmaster, earning several decorations, becoming a Navy Commander before the end of World War Two. After the Second World War, he remained in the Naval Reserve, serving in Korean War and Viet Nam before retiring in 1962. I don’t imagine that there were many men who served in four great wars spanning almost fifty years, with time between the wars to appear in motion pictures like this one.

George O’Brien is lawyer Bruce Lane in this sailing adventure, and his District Attorney boss tells him that he must serve one of the wealthiest men in the country with a subpoena to appear before a congressional committee. Unfortunately, Commodore Selby, the wealthy businessman, has enough people around him that no one can get near him with a subpoena. Our confident lawyer is convinced that he can do what an army of process servers could not do, using his confident smile and soft-spoken words.

His target, the elusive millionaire, is aboard his yacht on a ten-day sailing race from San Francisco to Hawaii, but even though our resourceful lawyer is able to serve him, circumstances, and a windjammer full of bootleg arms, will thrust him and the wealthy yachtsman into the hands of outlaws headed for China.
