Isle of Sunken Gold is a 1927 American silent adventure film serial directed by Harry S. Webb. The film was long considered to be lost,[1] however, chapters 4, 5, and 6 and reel 1 of chapter 7 were recently discovered in a European archive and retranslated back into English.

Plot[edit]

A ship captain gets a hold of half of a map leading to a treasure buried on an island in the South Seas.
