Selig's three-reel release for the first week of August 1915 was the muddled melodrama The Isle of Content. The title refers to the South Sea hideaway discovered during a storm by a salty sea captain. Feeling rested and relaxed for the first time in his life, the captain is reluctant to leave his little island, but he feels he is needed at home; however, upon his return, he discovers that his wife is dallying with another man. Thus, taking his five-year-old daughter along, the captain returns permanently to his Isle of Content. The rest of the story concentrates on the grown-up daughter and her romance with a handsome castaway. Featured in the supporting cast is a somewhat moth-eaten leopard, undoubtedly a resident of the Selig zoo.
