Trivia

The film was originally to be made in Egypt, but it was decided to film in Australia instead due to Egypt's deteriorating relations with the West following the Egyptian Revolution and subsequent abolition of the monarchy. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Pirates make a western and create bilge
19 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

This film is a great example of what happens when Hollywood hacks decide to take a classic character from literature and prostitute it for all it's worth.

So, cobble together a script full of "arrrghs" and "belays", hire a few props and stuntmen from a western and, by heck, while you're at it write in a hoedown scene to boot.

Invent a love interest for Long John Silver who has all the characteristics of a 19th century American mom.

Transport it to what looks to be the Australian bush and pretend that it's a tropical island.

The only thing going for this bucket of bilge is Robert Newton.
