Excellent, rare story
19 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on Turner Classic Movies as one of the silent films they sometimes show. It tells the story of Crighton, a British butler who takes his role as a servant and his duty to his employers very seriously. When the company shipwrecks on an island, however, Crighton, a working man, is the only person who has any useful skills. His ability to provide food and shelter slowly causes a shift in how he's seen.... After a while he's the alpha male....but there's more to the story than this.

The acting was fine and I found the movie very witty and entertaining. I'd really, really, really like to see it on DVD. It's one of my favorite silent films, and I have seen many I have enjoyed.
