Trivia

Griffith made this film and Enoch Arden: Part II (1911) together as a two-reeler, a first for an American studio. Biograph refused to release the two reels for the admission price of one. (Studio heads believed patrons wouldn't pay extra to see longer movies.) They released the film as two separate one-reelers, a common practice at the time. However, other two-part films were made as separate stories that stood alone. Audiences who saw the two parts of "Enoch Arden" could tell it was really one movie. They asked to see the two reels together. Exhibitors complied, charging double admission. Soon, all the studios were making two-reelers at increased prices. See more »

A very good reworking of an early Griffith short
12 August 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This story is a slight reworking of an early D. W. Griffith short, THE UNCHANGING SEA. While both films are short, this remake is significantly longer and allows for a much fuller and more interesting tale. It's interesting that the movie is broken into two sections here on IMDb, as I saw them both together as one 33-minute film.

A man goes to sea and is shipwrecked--leaving his wife to raise their two small kids. Many years pass and she holds out hope that he'll return. Again and again through the years, a friend offers to marry her. Only after her kids have grown does she agree. A short time later, the husband is rescued and returns! How exactly this is handled, you'll have to see for yourself.

Part I concerns the marriage, his going to sea and the shipwreck. Part II concerns life after this up until his return.
