Director Umetsugu Inoue’s second film with Yujiro Ishihara casts the actor as Senkichi, a seaman seeking out his father’s enemy. Senkichi’s bad attitude immediately gets him into trouble with the crew, but he attracts the attention of the two women on board: a sultry stowaway (Yumeji Tsukioka), and the captain’s high-spirited daughter (Ruriko Asaoka). Ishikara’s character was something new to Japanese films: a dirty hero with his own sense of justice (and a way with song!).
