Cruise of the Jasper B Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Produced by none other than [[Performer~P87147~Cecil B. DeMille~cecilbdemille]], this riotous silent comedy stars [[Performer~P39779~Rod La Rocque~rodlarocque]] 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 ([[Performer~P30662~Mildred Harris~mildredharris]] 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 [[Performer~P30662~Mildred Harris~mildredharris]] was the first wife of comedy star [[Performer~P12334~Charles Chaplin~charleschaplin]], a fact she reportedly never let anyone forget. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
