Drama (1937) 60 minutes ~ Black & White

The fourth and last of the George A. Hirliman-produced films starring George O’Brien that were distributed by RKO Radio. “Windjammer” finds O’Brien as a subpoena server ordered to serve a subpoena on Brandon Evans for a senate inquiry or lose his job. Posing as a playboy, he boards the Commodore’s yacht during a yacht race, and the yacht is wrecked by a gun-running windjammer commanded by Captain Morgan. All hands are picked up by the windjammer, including the Commodore’s daughter and put to work as galley slaves and such, but it isn’t long before O’Brien starts knocking heads, and making the gun-runners wish they had left him swimming.
