Description by OLDIES.com:

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.

Product Description:

Lars Hanson had recently appeared as Reverend Dimmesdale in THE SCARLET LETTER when he was called on once again to play a man of the cloth. Anson Campbell (Hanson), however, has his doubts as he studies for the ministry -- he loves the sea at least as much as he loves God. Bess Morgan (Pauline Starke) is scorned by the villagers as a wicked, sinful woman, but the open-minded Campbell sides with her. This horrifies the straight-laced townsfolk, and Campbell signs on with a ship in disgust. It turns out to be a convict ship, and Bess is on board. She had promised Campbell she would change her ways, and she hold fast to this, even when the Captain (Ernest Torrence) tries to force himself on her. Rather than allow him to have his way with her, she kills herself. Her steadfastness renews Campbell's faith, and he establishes the first gospel ship, thus blending his two loves. He returns home to wed his sweetheart, Mary Phillips (Marceline Day).
