SILENTS ON THE ISLANDS

Image: Motion Picture, December 1928

The Singapore Mutiny


This silent film was released on October 7, 1928. Some scenes were filmed near California's Santa Catalina Island. The basic plot involves two men competing for the (ahem!) affection of a woman of ill repute. When their ship sinks, the three are marooned on a life raft and their true characters are revealed.


The movie received a wide range of reviews. "Brutal melodrama." – Educational Screen, December 1928. "There were many silly things in Singapore Mutiny." – Film Spectator, October 13, 1928
