This picture has no end of entertainment value. It is just as thrilling and gripping as reading one of Rafael Sabatini’s books; all of the punch of that author’s writings has been brought to the screen.

There’s action aplenty. It starts in the first reel and holds true to the last minute. Milton Sills, who is featured together with Enid Bennett, comes into his own in this production, and Bennett also scores tremendously. One must, however, not overlook Wallace Beery, a low comedy ruffian, who wades right through the story.

Frank Lloyd, who directed, is to be considered with the best that wield a megaphone. The Sea Hawk cost around $800,000. The properties used alone cost $135,000. The picture looks it.
