B&W /1947 Rory Calhoun, Rhonda Fleming - DVD
In the late 1800's, Captain Donald Lochlin has had his commission revoked and is serving thirty days on a remote island for sinking his ship while on a drunken binge. Donald befriends Huish, an Englishman who is also serving time, and when they rescue young Mr. Herrick from quicksand, they all become friends. Donald is saved from his sentence when a commissioner gives him captaincy of a ship whose previous captain has died of smallpox. Donald hires Herrick as his first mate and Huish as his steward, and takes over the ship.
