Coast Patrol
Coast Patrol was a threadbare silent 5-reeler starring Kenneth MacDonald as an officer in the titular patrol. Nothing much happens really, except for a few misunderstandings, fistfights and boat chases. The film was, from all reports, well photographed; too bad there wasn't anything truly worth photographing. Spottiswoode Aitken, once one of the stalwarts of D.W. Griffith's stock company, is wasted in a minor role. If Coast Patrol has any distinction, it is that it served as one of the first leading-lady assignments for the very young Fay Wray. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
