Storyline

The "Treasure Ship" is not a real ship, but a model constructed by Captain Bascom during ten years of enforced solitude on a South Sea island after the wreck of the "Golden Cloud." The treasure consists of a bag of gems found under the skeleton of an earlier castaway. When rescue finally comes, Bascom stows the treasure in the hold of his model and so carries it safely to his home, where he has long been mourned as dead. He arrives in time to cheer the last moments of his dying wife, who has been faithful to his memory. Bascom finds that his daughter, Beth, is now a comely young woman. Tom, her brother, falls under evil influence and commits a theft. His father comes to his aid. Bascom has taken care to conceal all knowledge of his treasure from the children. He decides to bequeath it to Beth and conceives the idea of leaving a chart describing its location with directions couched in misleading, nautical terms, which to his simple mind seem clear and explicit.

We can very safely commend this
23 September 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A worthy, two-part offering that one and all will find entertaining and satisfying. This story is of a lonely tropic isle on which oily "combers" roll lazily up all day long. Other scenes are in a fishing village where the wife and children of the castaway sailor stand and wait. It is in itself a much better tale than Enoch Arden; is fresh and also in accord with the modern fashion in stories. The characters are life-like and, for the most part, well acted. The photography is well-nigh perfect. So we can very safely commend this as an exceptionally good offering. - The Moving Picture World, June 13, 1914
