As a young boy finds an old map of a treasure island in the mid 1700s, he joins a sailing crew on an adventure to find the treasure island. He does not realize however that bloodthirsty pirates are amongst the crew, desperately wanting to claim the treasure for themselves and are secretly planning a mutiny... Beautifully created adaption of Robert Louis Stevenson's novel 'Treasure Island', created for German/French television in 1966.
In the first scenes of part 2, Silver shows Hawkins a severly damaged ship in the harbour of Bristol, the 'Southern Cross'. The wreck is actually the ship used as the 'Hispanola', after it had been damaged in a heavy storm after shooting had ended. The wreck was filmed afterwards and used for an additional scene in the movie. See more »
Very realistic and not picturing the 2 opposite parties in black and white. Also good that the audience is led through the story by different characters and even by the young AND the old Jim Hawkins. Also the music helps a good deal to built up the tension. A pirate story for children and grown-ups.
