Storyline

Annie Jackson, living with her uncle, Horace Gregory, an old fisherman on Val Dez Island, is injured by an automobile. John Kingdon, who happens by, takes her in his machine to the hospital. There he learns to love her, but his advances are not wanted by her uncle, for his choice for his niece's hand is John Runyon. So when Annie returns to her home, and is told to marry Runyon, she refuses. In the meantime, Kingdon leaves for Honolulu. The vessel is wrecked. Kingdon, cast into the sea, clings half exhausted to a spar. By a trick of Fate, the wreck occurs on the rocks of Val Dez Island, and Annie sees the spar, rows out and succeeds in dragging it to shore, where Kingdon is recognized. The young people declare their love for each other, but Runyon plans to get Kingdon out of his way. The "best laid plans of mice and men gang aft aglee," and so Kingdon escapes the trap laid for him, and taking Annie with him to the mainland, they get married.

misidentified film in the EYE collection - in fact The Old Captain
21 October 2016 | by kekseksaSee all my reviews

A film in the EYE Desmet collection is wrongly identified as being this film. It actually concerns an old captain who loses his post on account of a jealous mate, a drunkard who causes the wreck of the ship and the death of the ship's owner. This film is a Selig film of 1911 but it is The Old Captain not Shipwrecked (although this is the Dutch title - hence the error).

For other misidentifications in the Eye collection see also Lost Illusions (now correctly identified as The Price), A Loyal Deserter (in fact 1861) and The Poor Musician (in fact The Musician's Daughter).
