Cast & Crew
One of the customs in the Breton island of St. Ba'tiste is the lashing of any woman involved in a pre-marital or extra-marital affair. As a result, when Sidonie starts an affair with English vacationer Warren Harding, the townsfolk prepare to mete out punishment. To avoid it, Sidonie elopes with Warren, but when she finds him making love to another woman, her first response is conditioned by her upbringing, and she attacks the woman with a whip. Afterward, Sidonie returns alone to St. Ba'tiste, and gets ready to accept her lashing. Just before her public humiliation, however, Warren arrives and refuses to let the whipping take place, after which he pledges to remain faithful to Sidonie.
Local fisherman, Henry Starck, was paid $100 to pilot and capsize a dory thru Arch Rock.
Jane Wolff is probably the same as the actress Jane Wolfe. The Paramount studio records lists the assistant director of this film as W. F. Van Dyke. This is probably an erroneous listing for W. S. Van Dyke. Arthur Hoyt served on the film as either an actor or a casting director.
