With an elder retired sea captain at the helm of the Inn, these youngsters begin an adventure of finding a world full of life, treasure, and danger outside the confines of their parents' home. As a child, I was glued to the TV for this one. As an adult, I see now what I was finding in this story. A timeless pirate story with a lot of heart, along with children who actually talk and behave as ordinary children might while in the middle of an extra-ordinary treasure hunt. This film is a classic that predates all recent pirate films, it is the "Shane" of the childhood pirate drama. Suggestion to Disney: Re-release this in DVD form for the current generation.
