Enchanted Island is more than a little beholden to Shakespeare's The Tempest. For 15 years, Tim Sanborn (H. B. Walthall) and his daughter Alice (Charlotte Stevens) have been happily marooned on a desert island. Suddenly, three shipwrecked strangers wash up on shore. Afraid that Alice will be compromised by the male mariners, Sanborn passes the girl off as a boy (now we're into Twelfth Night territory). The nicest of the castaways (Pierre Gendron) proves that his intentions are honorable, but there's a volcano to contend with before a happy (or at least satisfying) ending can be realized.
