Island of Regeneration
Gorbo from CZECH REPUBLIC
1 May 2007
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.
