Is not so good as it might have been
20 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

A conventional picture with a story more like "Robinson Crusoe" than like the song from which it takes its title. The acting is very fair, but the photography is not so good as it might have been. We don't imply that one fails to see enough in the views, but there is little art or beauty in them. With few exceptions, the mechanical work in all the pictures seems to be falling down of late. The tale is of three men, a father and his two sons, who are cast away and remain on a desert island so long that the wife and mother thinks them dead and sells the home. They come back just in time to save it. An ordinary offering. - The Moving Picture World, January 4, 1913
