SEE MORE OF ROBERT NEWTON AS LONG JOHN SILVER
8 October 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although the editing and colour is pretty ropey. Fans of British actor Robert Newton in his classic role as British pirate turned semi-respectable citizen Long John Silver, will want to see more of him in this vintage TV series. Six episodes from the series were released as a three video set in 1999 (in the United States).
