The seafaring drama Hearts of Oak was based on a play by James A. Herne. Ralph Stuart headed the cast as Terry Dunnivan, a blasphemous old sea dog with a well-hidden streak of decency. Terry falls in love with Chrystal, even though she has let him know that she cares only for handsome young Ned. In the end, Terry sacrifices his own life to ensure the future happiness of Chrystal and Ned, a scene that was dismissed as "too drawn out" by the reviewer for Variety. Hearts of Oak was remade in 1924, with John Ford in the director's chair and Hobart Bosworth as Terry.
