Storyline

The Charnocks, a wealthy landowner family from Virginia, take their yacht on a cruise to the South Pacific. The yacht catches fire near a desert island, and while John Sr. dies in the fire, his wife and son make it to the island, where she soon dies. Twenty years later Katherine Brenton, a wealthy young woman, is on a yacht trip in the South Pacific with playboy Valentine Langford, testing her theory that men and women can have platonic relationships under any conditions. When Langford makes a pass at her she knocks him out and flees the yacht for a nearby desert island--which happens to be the same one that young John Charnock was stranded on 20 years earlier. They soon find each other. Complications--and an earthquake--ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Island of Regeneration
1 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Long before he was kindly old Dr. Meade in Gone With the Wind, Harry Davenport was a sort of renaissance man of the American theatre, serving as actor, writer, producer and director. Wearing his director's cap, Davenport helmed the 1915 silent feature Island of Regeneration. Juvenile star (and future Warner Bros. director) Bobby Connolly plays the young gadfly in a group of tourists trapped on a desert island. While Connolly remains pretty much the same from first reel to last, each of the adult members undergoes a life transformation during their enforced stay. A well-handled earthquake sequence climaxes this adaptation of a novel by Cyrus Townsend Brady.
