Quotes

[opening narration to most episodes]
Capt. Long John Silver: If sailor tales and sailor tunes, / Storm and adventure, heat and cold, / If schooners, islands and maroons / And buccaneers and buried gold, / And all the old romance retold / Exactly in the ancient way / Can please as me they pleased of old / The wiser youngsters of today... So be it! Ar-har! And fall on!

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).
