Storyline

The beginning of the film deals with the love romance of a deep-sea diver and the daughter of an old curio collector, whose past life takes up a good part of the film and reveals to the spectator his younger days as he tells them the story of his romance and marriage. The dramatic situations, showing how his young bride was stolen from him by buccaneers, his heroic rescue of her, the casting overboard of the treasure chest and the burning of the vessel, prepare the spectator for the climax of this dramatic film when the deep-sea diver goes in search of the sunken treasure. Here is introduced a wonderful scene of the bottom of the ocean with the diver at his work. The frantic struggle for air when the pumps are stopped, the finding of the treasure and the saving of his sweetheart's father are all intensely interesting. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The pianist will need to hustle if he wants to keep up with it
12 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

When once this picture gets well started, the pianist will need to hustle if he wants to keep up with it; it is speedy. There is a very lively and exciting fight on board the pirate's big ship. This pirate has abducted a woman; it is for personal vengeance. Her husband has roused the neighborhood and the pirate has not been able to get under sail. Over the gunwhale of the big ship they swarm, swords out, and then the fight is on, in earnest until the ship is blown up by the villain. The next scene shows a burning ship; the spectators being safe on shore. This is fine; but not so wonderful as a later scene, near the close of the story, which shows us a diver in his queer rig on the floor of the ocean, strange forms of sea-weed growing high as his head above him, and great fishes swimming about him. That scene is very creditable. This pirate ship comes in a narrative, told to two lovers by the girl's father, who wants the lover to secure a chest of treasure lost from the ship. This well made and well photographed picture held the spectators from first to finish. It is a good release. - The Moving Picture World, May 18, 1912
