Assistant State Attorney Bruce Lane (George O’Brien) is ordered to serve a subpoena on the prosperous Commodore Selby (Brandon Evans), requiring him to appear at a senate enquiry. The time he finds to do this is not an opportune one. He signs on as a deckhand aboard the Commodore’s yacht during a yacht race that will lead across the Pacific, with Hawaii as the final port of call. As fate would have it, the Commodore’s craft is wrecked by the windjammer of weapon-smuggler Captain Morgan (William Hall). This effectively puts Lane in the thickest part of a rapidly thickening plot.
The Commodore’s entire crew is captured by the marauders. Their high-society balloon is quickly deflated when they are drafted into enforced onboard labor. What makes it personal for Lane is the fact that the Commodore’s gorgeous daughter Betty (Constance Worth) is among them. Her presence triggers a hidden cache of chivalry and swashbuckling enthusiasm within him.
Bruce Lane’s mission obviously drastically shifts in focus. The main item on his agenda had been to serve a court summons in order to save his job;now it is becoming the rallying point for a boorish army of inept aristocrats. Against seemingly impossible odds, Lane mobilizes their collective faculties – and his own - to make a variety of violent points to make aboard the windjammer. If all goes well, he stands to gain something far more interesting than momentary glory….

MPAA Ratings: NR
Bruce Lane (George O’Brien) is landed with the unenviable task of serving a nasty piece of court paper on Commodore Selby (Brandon Evans). He finds no other way of doing this than enlisting on board the Commodore’s yacht – and getting sucked into a potentially murderous race to Hawaii. Probably the only redeeming factor to the situation is the ravishingly attractive Betty Selby (Constance Worth). When the yacht is rammed by Captain Morgan’s gunrunning windjammer and all hands are captured and put to work on board the marauders’ craft, Lane is mobilized into violent action. Will enlisting the help of the inexperienced captives be sufficient to launch a successful bid for freedom?
With Windjammer, director Ewing Scott once again proves that he has a discerning finger on the audience’s pulse. This classic 1937 feature film has all the ingredients of an absorbing on-screen experience that negates humdrum reality and takes you on a rip-roaring voyage of suspense and high-seas action.
"I love a good adventure movie, and Windjammer met all my criteria – it has suspense, great action and some incredibly talented acting by George O’Brien and Constance Worth. This is a major detraction from O’Brien’s usual Western avatar and he is absolutely great. Not a boring moment and the satisfaction of a good movie well seen…."
Leola J. Sloane (Takoma Park, Washington)
"Windjammer is a classic movie in the tradition of Captain Calamity and Beneath the 12-Mile Reef. The story has a unique twang to it and the acting is absolutely fabulous. This film once again proves that Technicolor is not a prerequisite to the making of a good feature film – what it takes is a great story, script and accomplished performances. has scored again!"
