Storyline

The desire for adventure in the boy, Crusoe, leads him to neglect his lessons, and to be reproved by his father. Finally, the boy packs his bundle and runs away to sea, a splendid view being given of the vessel on which he embarks at Hull hoisting sail and putting out to sea. The vessel on which Crusoe sails on his last voyage for twenty-eight years is wrecked. In a fine scene with a "rough" sea which is really rough. The hero is carried to the shore of the island. His first difficulty, that of lighting a fire, is solved by a flash of lightning, a very clever electrical effect, and soon we see him fairly accustomed to his new life, dressed in a robe of skins and living in a rude bower with only his goat for a companion. The peaceful, if precarious, life is broken by the first visit of the cannibals to the island, and Crusoe is an affrighted witness of their weird dances about the fire.

The producer has done well in placing this upon the films

In more ways than one this picture is praiseworthy. for example, it would hardly be supposed that tropical scenes could be reproduced in Denmark with such fidelity. Yet there it is and its success is as certain as though it was actually made among the jungles it is supposed to represent. And there is Robinson Crusoe, the friend of every boy who ever read a story, as fresh and perennial as when he first began. There is Friday, too, and other features of the story followed as closely as the great condensation required permits. The producer has done well in placing this upon the films. He has selected those scenes and incidents which form such a considerable part of the story, the pivotal scenes, one may say, and has depicted them with fidelity to the original. This suit is an excellent reproduction of the story and a faithful adherence to the traditions with which every boy is familiar. The picture must prove popular. It couldn't well do otherwise. It is worked out with care, with close attention to the details, and represents the best in this sort of work. It was almost an inspiration to reproduce this. It will prove popular with everyone familiar with the story. - The Moving Picture World, September 24, 1910
