Did You Know?


The film was originally to be made in Egypt, but it was decided to film in Australia instead to lower production costs. Egypt's relations with the West did not really begin to deteriorate until 1955, when the Nasser regime publicly recognized Communist China's claim to Taiwan and began importing arms from the Soviet Union via the Soviet client state of Czechoslovakia.

Out of Yo-Ho-Hos and a Bottle of Rum
13 June 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

After Walt Disney's relatively well-produced version of "Treasure Island" (1950), timber-shivering Robert Newton (as "Long John Silver") returns. He is made to rescue kidnapped Kit Taylor (as Jim Hawkins) along with a damsel in distress, avoid the marriage-minded Connie Gilchrist (as Purity Pinker), and embark on a far less satisfying treasure hunt. This slight, long, and disappointing sequel rests its laurels almost entirely on Mr. Newton's top-heavy characterization. Late in the running time, young Hawkins and a vision-impaired Rodney "Rod" Taylor (as Israel Hands) give Newton a run for the money. Another "Return to Treasure Island" (also 1954), starring Tab Hunter, was even more peripheral to the original. Like Newton says, "Tis a long time since Treasure Island."

**** Long John Silver (12/16/54) Byron Haskin ~ Robert Newton, Kit Taylor, Connie Gilchrist, Rod Taylor
