The Docks of New York

1928 NR

When burly seaman Bill Roberts (George Bancroft) sees a young woman trying to drown herself in the East River, he jumps in to rescue her -- but soon comes to realize that much more will be required to save her from her desperate straits. Also starring Betty Compson, this gritty look at life on New York City's early 20th century waterfront is among several brilliantly crafted silent films from acclaimed director Josef von Sternberg.
