Storyline

Hervé is a tough sea captain in command of the "Duchesse Anne", a rum-trading ship. But the sea dog hides a tender heart and he allows Marie-Douce, a poor slum girl who dreams of seeing the wide world,on board. To have her accepted by the crew, he passes her off as his niece. A seasoned master like him, wise enough to ban alcohol use on his ship, should have known better : a beautiful girl on the deck cannot but unleash the savage instincts of all those men without women...

Trivia

After the Liberation, Nantes, where the film was to be shot, was badly damaged by the war and could only be used partly. The Quais de la Fosse, for instance, had to be reconstructed in the Buttes Chaumont Studios. Likewise it was quite an ordeal to find a four-master that could double for the "Duchesse Anne".
