Forbidden Cargo is a 1925 American silent drama film directed by Tom Buckingham and featuring Boris Karloff.[1] The film is considered to be lost.[2][3]


As described in a film magazine review,[4] Captain Drake's services to the government has gone unrecognized, and he has grown to be a bitter old man. His daughter Polly carries on and becomes the captain of a rum-running schooner, known only as Captain Joe. Jerry Burke of the Secret Service has been assigned to ferret out the illicit traders. He becomes interested in Polly but the young woman's confederate, Pietro Castillano, learns Jerry's identity, so they shanghai him. In a battle between bootleggers and hijackers, Jerry escapes with the young woman to an island. Here they are captured by the gang, but are saved when she signals the marines. Jerry and Polly are then wed.
