Storyline

American academic Clive Stone is conducting research on pirate lore for a book. Part of that lore includes pirate Captain Flint of "Treasure Island" fame having hidden some piratical treasure on the island over two hundred years ago. As such, Clive writes to Jamesina 'Jamie' Hawkins, a direct descendant of Jim Hawkins (after who she was named) and the current proprietor of the Admiral Ben Bow Inn, to inquire about some of her possessions, namely a map and a bible, which he believes are clues to the hidden treasure, which she in turn believes is only lore and doesn't exist. Over a year after that inquiry, Stone visits Jamie coincidentally on the day that thieves try to steal the map, which Jamie proudly displays in the Inn. Stone requests to borrow the map, to which Jamie agrees - only if she goes along with him to Treasure Island - based on an incident that happens that day after the theft attempt. Stone tells her of evil blind Felix Newman, who will do whatever he can to find the ... Written by Huggo

Strictly for the kiddies
5 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Derring-do hampered by lackadaisical direction and a less then gripping story. Still not bad in a colorful Saturday morning matinée way with a handsome hero and lovely leading lady.

Part of the problem is that after an initial skirmish the villains and the supposedly imperiled couple rarely intersect, it's almost as if they are on separate islands in their search for the loot until the very last minute. Even at a brief 75 minute running time it seems to take everyone forever to achieve the goal of tracking down the loot.

As an actor and narrator Tab Hunter is very beautiful. His blonde shirtless attractiveness is a nice distraction but his line readings are so flat and his reactions to almost every situation so non-reactive he makes you yearn for the over the top scenery chewing of Robert Newton in the original Treasure Island.
