Code of the Sea ()

directed by
featuring Rod La Rocque, Jacqueline Logan, George Fawcett, Maurice B. Flynn, Luke Cosgrave

The story to this sea melodrama was written by Byron Morgan. Morgan was best known for the fast-paced auto tales he wrote for Wallace Reid, so this was quite a departure for him. When Bruce McDow (Rod LaRocque) refuses to go aloft to fix a rigging during a storm, and he is branded a coward. McDow believes his lack of courage is hereditary because many years before his father had taken his lightship into harbor during a storm instead of aiding a passenger liner; as a result, the liner wrecked. Because of this, Captain Hayden (George Fawcett) hates the name McDow. Hayden's daughter, Jenny (Jacqueline Logan), however, has faith in Bruce. She helps him get a job as mate on a lightship and once again a storm blows. Captain Hayden loses a propeller while bringing his ship in. Jenny, meanwhile, has come to meet him in a yacht which goes on the rocks. Both Bruce and Hayden get the wire from the yacht, and Hayden tells Bruce to save Jenny. Bruce sets out in a launch and he reaches the boat. Everyone is saved except him when the boat goes down. He is washed ashore clinging to a spar, and that's how Jenny finds him the next day. His bravery proven, Bruce is hailed as a hero. Janiss Garza, Rovi Hide synopsis
