He’s a man of the cloth. She’s a scarlet woman. His act of kindness brings them together. Society seeks to tear them apart. Captain Salvation is the turbulent tale of Anson Campbell, a New England minister who is ostracized when he shows compassion to a prostitute. The two outcasts set sail on a convict ship, where the fallen woman vows to reform—a vow that leads to both tragedy and redemption. Lars Hanson, a handsome, strapping Swede and one of the silent era’s finest actors, gives a deeply felt performance as Campbell. His work in The Saga of Gosta Berling, the film that made Greta Garbo a star, earned him a ticket to Hollywood and leading roles in such cinema milestones as The Wind and The Scarlet Letter.
