The remake of 1923 Isle of Lost Ships (1923 version is lost) was rekeased in 1929 as a talkie and - for unprepared theaters - a silent. Library of Congress seemingly has the silent version (minus maybe a little footage). However, William K. Everson reported viewing the sound version without sound discs in 1962. There was apparently a T.V. (?) production in 1955 called
"An Adventure to Remember" by Robert G. Youngson with 10 minutes from the 1929 "Isle of Lost Ships" (don't know if sound or silent). Would love to get my hands on Mr. Youngson's production (if the full film doesn't get distributed 1st; I hear it's quite good).
Hope that helps a little...
