MOONTIDE, released in 1942 by 20th Century Fox Pictures, directed by Archie Mayo, stars Ida Lupino, Jean Gabin, Claude Rains, Thomas Mitchell, Jerome Cowan, and Victor Sen Yung. After a drunken binge on the San Pablo waterfront, longshoreman Bobo fears he may have killed a man. In his uncertainty, he takes a job on an isolated bait barge. That night, he rescues a lovely young woman from a watery suicide attempt and installs her on the barge. But Tiny, Bobo's longtime pal and parasite, hopes to drive Anna away before domestic bliss tears Bobo away from him; the still unsolved murder may be just the wedge Tiny needs.
