B.I.G. Production for Charles Herbert
17 July 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

On a rocky Massachusetts beach, "big for my size" ten-year-old Charles Herbert (as Jimmy Warren) picks up a bottle that has washed ashore. Thinking about the wrecked ship where he plays, his chores, and a bad report card; young Herbert wishes he were back in days of yore, when pirates ruled the seas. Released from his bottle prison by Herbert, turbaned genie Joseph Turkel (as Abu) grants the lad's wish, transporting Herbert two hundred years into the past...

Herbert finds himself on the pirate ship "Queen's Revenge" commandeered by merciless Murvyn Vye (as Blackbeard)...

Pirates are a problem, but so is a genie plotting to trap Herbert; the boy must find his way back to the 20th century or take Mr. Turkel's place in the bottle. After telling Mr. Vye about jet airplanes, Herbert is assumed to be hitting the bottle. During an ocean battle, Herbert rescues cute Susan Gordon (as Katrina), who resembles his little friend "Kathy" (and producer/director Bert I. Gordon's daughter). "The Boy and the Pirates" plays nicely for kids.

****** The Boy and the Pirates (4/13/60) Bert I. Gordon ~ Charles Herbert, Susan Gordon, Joe Turkel, Murvyn Vye
