In this D.W. Griffith South Seas drama a religious zealot and his nephew are thrown together on a South Seas Island with an alcoholic beach comber and a native dancer. A battle to see who will "civilize" whom ensues.

Clarine Seymour steals the picture and she is totally breathtaking as the little "native" girl. She was constantly moving and emoting. It's wonderful to see her in ANYTHING since she died in 1920 at the age of 21 after an operation for intestinal blockage.
