Storyline

Davy Jones is again on the run, a victim to a weakness for the fairer sex. This time he is a castaway on the shores of Borneo, where he is captured by the natives, whom he wins over with the aid of his magnifying glass, and soon finds himself "King of the Cannibal Island." He enjoys his honors immensely and joins in their sports of tree climbing, war dances and other ceremonies with which he is hailed as chief. He gets up against it, however, when he makes love to a dusky damsel and is told he must marry her. He already has been married once too often and refuses to take chances with another. Again he is on his way a few yards in advance of the pursuing wild men of Borneo. He beats it to the seashore, where he hails a passing vessel, making a very narrow escape amid the flying spears and arrows of his followers. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Still in trouble with the feminine portion of humanity
10 November 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Nothing has been seen of Davy since he ran away from his termagant wife and shipped on a vessel sailing to the antipodes. Here he turns up in the South Seas, still in trouble with the feminine portion of humanity. His usual fate overtakes him, however, and when informed that he must marry one of the dusky belles to whom he has mead love, his speed for the vessel would do credit to one of the fastest. And in this instance there is ample reason for dispatch. The tribe is close behind him, and the shower of weapons which follow him toward the ship, are evidence of the extreme love of the tribe for him. It is plain they wanted him back, but what would have happened afterward can only be conjectured. - The Moving Picture World, February 11, 1911
