Again, info mostly from IMDb.

Bobbie's role in this film is very brief. He plays the captain of a German U-boat that stops the ship Madeleine, the heroine of the story, is aboard, to look for traitors.

Another film I've had for some 20 years or more. Mine runs 75 minutes; not the 77 mentioned by IMDb.

From everything I have read, this was Bobbie's second appearance in a film, but the first one, Reunion (1932), seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth emoticon

Snappys:

The beginning of the story . . .

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

The captain of a German U-boat spots the passenger ship.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

After boarding, he checks out the passengers.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

He is suspicious of the heroine, but lets her go in the end.

The entire rest of the film is sadly Bobbie-less emoticon but at least we got to see him for a few moments.
