Some good scenic effects to help it along
4 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A story located in the Hawaiian Islands, with some good scenic effects to help along its none too strong plot. The captain of a trading vessel takes a native girl away from her Island lover. Their vessel is wrecked and they swim to shore. Later he sells the girl to a Chinaman. But a just fate awaits him as he falls from a cliff at the end. The photography in this might have been better in places. - The Moving Picture World, May 24, 1913
