Cargo to Capetown Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Oscar or no Oscar, [[Performer~P15668~Broderick Crawford~broderickcrawford]] was obliged to star in whatever property his home studio Columbia threw his way. In Cargo to Capetown, [[Performer~P15680~Crawford~jimcrawford]] plays Johnny Phelan, first mate on a rundown oil tanker captained by his pal Steve Conway ([[Performer~P223740~John Ireland~johnireland]]). Johnny is willing to look the other way whenever Steve's larcenous nature comes to surface. But when Steve starts moving in on Johnny's girl Kitty Mellar ([[Performer~P20138~Ellen Drew~ellendrew]]), it's more than he can stand. The two men become buddies again during a climactic shipboard fire. Not exactly a "B" picture, Cargo to Capetown isn't precisely an "A", either. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
