Description by OLDIES.com:

According to his pirate ancestors' family tradition, Jerry Cleggett must marry on the deck of the ancient sailing ship, The Jasper B, on his 25th birthday, or lose his inheritance. Just in the nick of time, he finds a worthy soul-mate in beautiful heiress Agatha Fairhaven. But as the two lovebirds race to reach The Jasper B before sundown, gangsters, the federal authorities, and Agatha's stepbrother who stands to lose a fortune if the couple wed, are all converging to make sure that the nuptials are not allowed to take place.

Dashing shirtless star Rod La Rocque headlined this fine Cecil B. DeMille production three years after rocketing to fame in the director's 1923 masterpiece, The Ten Commandments. After a high-profile marriage to beautiful silent star Vilma Banky, La Rocque made a successful transition to sound, appearing in classics such as The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (1939) and Meet John Doe (1941) before retiring to a successful real estate career.

Product Description:

Produced by none other than Cecil B. DeMille, this riotous silent comedy stars Rod La Rocque as Jerry Cleggert, a descendant of a notorious family of pirates forced to marry on the deck of the rotting "Jasper B." or forfeit a large inheritance. Jerry finds the perfect would-be spouse in pretty Agatha Fairhaven (Mildred Harris but the couple are waylaid en route to the important nuptials by a gang of bandits. The highlight of the comedy was a wild spree in a driverless taxi cap pursued not only by the gangsters but by local, state and Federal authorities as well. Needless to say, the exasperated couple manages to say their "I dos" right before the deadline. Leading lady Mildred Harris was the first wife of comedy star Charles Chaplin, a fact she reportedly never let anyone forget.
