After the Treasure Island adventure, Long John Silver turns up on a British Caribbean island, where he hears that rival pirate Mendoza has taken the ship carrying the governor's daughter...and his young friend Jim Hawkins. Naturally, there's more to his rescue plan than meets the eye; he hopes to get a new ship and go back for more treasure... Written by

When Silver lays out the plan to 'El Toro' Mendoza to waylay Sir Henry's warehouse of jewels and rum, it called for two signal fires to send the governor's warships south as a diversion, while the pirates would head north toward the warehouse. However, only one signal fire was lit, which was the signal for Henry's men to go north as well. See more »
Drawn out, occasionally boring, film about L.J. happening upon Jimbo Hawkins one more time during the former's further adventures in pirating and pillaging and all that. Jim's days as a cabin boy are numbered and Robert Newton's pirate schtick is somewhat entertaining, but becomes rather strained after the first 20 minutes or so. Saturated colors and bright costumes help one swallow the rest of this ultimately noisy production.
George Simpson-Little turns in a sharp performance as 'Captain Asa McDougall'.
