Men Without Women (1930) is a American drama film directed and written by John Ford, from the script by James Kevin McGuinness. The film also starred Kenneth MacKenna, Frank Albertson, and J. Farrell MacDonald.



Aboard the U.S. submarine S13 in the China seas, Chief Torpedoman Burke goes about his duties. In reality, he is Quartermaine, the infamous former commander of the British ship Royal Scot, which was sunk by Germans with a Field Marshal aboard. Quartermaine had told his sweetheart that the Field Marshal would be aboard, not knowing that she was an informant for the enemy. When the S13 sinks, Burke takes charge when the commander, Ensign Price, is unable to command. Burke must keep his mates alive long enough on the bottom of the sea for rescuers to arrive.

The film opens in Shanghai with a shore party of rowdy American sailors going partying an enormous establishment surrounded by women in the world's largest bar.



The film premiered on January 31, 1930, in New York City. It was filmed on Santa Catalina Island, California, and was released by the Fox Film Corporation.
