Storyline

John Davis, first mate of the brig "Gifford," is seen bidding his wife and infant child a tearful adieu on the eve of the sailing of his ship. Caught in a terrible storm in the Pacific Ocean, the vessel is wrecked and all on board are supposed to have been drowned, at least so the newspapers chronicled. What a blow this was to the young wife, waiting for her dear one's return. Although the evidence was apparently conclusive, still she could not reconcile herself to the fact that her husband had gone from her forever; something in her heart tells that he still lives, and in truth, for we see the poor shipwrecked mariner cast up by the seething sea on to a desert island in the Western Ocean. Here he spent seven long, weary years, worse off that De Foe's famous hero, "Robinson Crusoe," for he at least enjoyed the companionship of "Friday," but Davis was all alone. Now and then a distant sail, like a tantalizing phantom, would come into view and fade away again from sight, being too far ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

D.W. Griffith and Lord Alfred Tennyson
30 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This short film was released in September of 1908 and was adapted from a portion of Tennyson's poem, 'Enoch Arden'. The story is about a love triangle (the leading lady falls for her sweetheart's best friend when she hears that her sweetheart has died at sea), and the first lover ends up the worst.
