Storyline

The story opens after the death of Vivian's father, with the reading of his will, Vivian is made sole heiress, while her uncle is placed over her as guardian for a term of years. Should she marry, the estate goes to the husband. The uncle, Ralph, determines to marry his own son, Jack, to Vivian, and as the estate is on a secluded island, he is confident that matters will work out his way. We are then introduced to Teddy and Brian, who leave in a motor launch to look for what Brian calls "the land of romance." They arrive at Vivian's island and make camp.

A very passable special offering
3 November 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A romance in two reels, written by Stewart Peyton and put on by Frank Crane. The heroine is a poor, rich orphan left in the keeping of her villainous uncle. She owns the Isle of Romance, where her home is, and two young college men land there to camp out. In the working out of this situation many things happen that are full of romance and pleasing, but now and then the illusion runs a bit thin. Yet the story interests and has, as one of its features, a remarkably well trained dog seemingly endowed with intelligence. This dog is used to effect the rescue when the hero is shut up in the cellar and also to entrap the villain and his son. There are scenes on water and on land. The photography is good and the whole makes a very passable special offering. - The Moving Picture World, July 18, 1914
