Why Sailors Go Wrong
Cast & Crew
In an attempt to win her back, would-be suitor John Hastings invites Doris Martin and her father to take a yacht cruise with him. Her fiancé, James Collier, tries to stowaway and hires two taxicab drivers, Cohen and Mac, to get work on the ship and help him get aboard. When Hastings sees Collier on deck, however, he orders Cohen and Mac to lock him up. Cohen and Mac wake the next morning on the shores of Pago Pago. They wrestle with lions, alligators, and monkeys and are about to be slain by the natives when they are saved by the crew of an American warship.
