Long John Silver claimed to have served with Hawke. Hawke was a naval officer best remembered for his victory over the French fleet at the Battle of Quiberon Bay in 1759. See more »
When Jim grounds the jolly boat and jumps out onto the beach, Silver immediately levels his pistol at him. In the next shot, the pistol is pointed at a right angle to Jim, then Silver levels it again. See more »
if you have ever read the book by Robert Louis Stevenson, you will truly enjoy this movie. Robert Newton is the perfect Long John Silver. I cannot imagine another actor living up to the role the way he did. Sure, the acting may not be the best, and the screen effects may be bad, but you have to remember when it was made. It is a very good movie for its time, and quite an enjoyable one in mine. If you enjoy seafaring movies- See this one. If you like pirate flicks- this one will have you arrgging all night long.
When I think of Long John silver, I think of one quote, "Fortune sits on the shoulder of him what schemes."
