Cast & Crew
Intending to sail his schooner, the Laughing Lass , to his ancestors' treasure island in the South Seas, veteran seaman Obadiah Wolf makes his last payment on the vessel to Ellory Glendenning, a crook who hopes to cheat the old man out of the boat and then sell it to the government at an exorbitant price. Learning that Obadiah has a treasure map tattoed on his chest, a pirate called "Bad-Eye" forces the old buccaneer to accompany him to the island. Meanwhile, Ellory and his son Harold seize the Laughing Lass , ordering Rory O'Malley, who is loved by Obadiah's granddaughter Patricia, to sail it to the South Seas so that Harold may evade the draft. During a storm, Rory and Patricia take control of the schooner, and soon they too land on the island. Rory and Patricia unearth the treasure and then rescue Obadiah from "Bad-Eye," whom they leave on the island. Upon the party's return home, Ellory is compelled to give the ship back to Obadiah and his son to the U.S. army.
