A literal adaptation of the popular stage play by Ian Hay and Stephen King-Hall, specialists both in maritime comedies, The Middle Watch stars Owen Nares as Captain Maitland, skipper of a battleship bound for the high seas. Not only is Maitland a by-the-book disciplinarian, but he's also an avowed woman-hater. Unbeknownst to the captain, two pretty damsels, Mary (Jacqueline Logan) and Fay (Dodo Watts), have been sneaked aboard by their sailor boyfriends. Upon learning the truth, poor Maitland has a devil of a time trying to keep the girls hidden from the Lord Admiral. The Middle Watch was remade as a Jack Buchanan vehicle in 1939, then again in 1955.
