The Isle of Lost Ships is a 1923 American silent adventure/melodrama film directed and produced by Maurice Tourneur and distributed by Associated First National Pictures.[1] The film is based on Crittenden Marriott's novel The Isle of Dead Ships c.1909. The story was re-filmed in 1929 by director Irvin Willat.[2][3]

Tourneur himself made a different story with similar theme called The Ship of Lost Souls (1929) which had a young German actress, Marlene Dietrich, in the cast.[4]

The 1923 film has long since been thought to be lost.[5]
