Synopsis by Tana Hobart
Although the photography of the beautiful South Seas island and the musical score of this movie (by Alfred Newman) make this a memorable comedy, there is little else to commend it. Written and portrayed by Douglas Fairbanks, this is the story of a man who makes a bet that he can live on a deserted island for a year without any of the accouterments of the civilized world. He builds a penthouse quality abode which stretches the credulity of the viewers and, of course, a woman arrives in the picture.
