Poor Sally Blane . . . Loretta Young's kid sister is in for a rough ride, and you may be surprised how complicated the plot can get from this 1932 dramatic thriller. There is a universal law that works all the time, everywhere, and in every situation. It is hinted at in scores of movies, and in most of the 'holy' books from just about every religion. I was brought up with the Bible, and in it one of the places it is mentioned it says something like, 'whatsoever a man plants, so shall he reap.' If you want to eat corn on the cob in the fall, you'd better plant corn in the spring, not beans. If you want a life filled with people who love you and enjoy your company, you'd better love the ones around you and enjoy their company no matter how 'different' they are from you. What you plant, you reap. In this dramatic film about seamen and their lives and loves, it takes twenty odd years for two sea captains to reap their harvest, but that harvest comes as sure as the sun rising in the east. Many people today refer to this univeral law as the law of attraction - you attract to yourself the exact same things that you project out to others. John Wayne made a movie about this universal law back in 1947. In this motion picture, one sea captain gets a sweet portion of revenge, and the other reaps the rewards of an evil life. And poor Sally Blane is caught in the middle. Get your white kernel popcorn ready and enjoy a wild and wooly tale of sea faring families and the Law of the Sea.
