A Girl in Every Port

The plot deals with a Damon and Pythias friendship between two rough and tumble seamen. A Girl in Every Port is packed with sex, but has not romance; it has a dozen ingenues and no heroine. Of all the beautiful bimboes encountered by the sailors in their world travels not one is on the up-and-up, and the one (Louise Brooks) who inspires Victor McLaglen to day dream over settling down in a cottage for two is the biggest golddigger of all.

The picture is a series of hoke adventures with dames and gendarmes. It holds a lot of laughs and still maintains a human note on the comrade angle. McLaglen is great as the heavy-hitting bozo. His buddy is played by Robert Armstrong, legit actor, newly recruited to the screen.

Malcolm Stuart Boylan’s titles seem involved and obscure on several occasions. Howard Hawks makes a good job of directing with the exception of an overdone bit of melodramatic acting by McLaglen upon the discovery of what he supposes to be the perfidy of his buddy.
