Director-star Kirk Douglas is all ham as 'Peg' in this surprisingly amateurish remake of "Treasure Island" in a western setting. What probably undoes this film more than anything else is the inept editing. Scenes do not transition well at all. Lesley-Anne Down is quite beautiful as Lucy-Ann, and even gets to sing a ballad (probably the film's highlight) written by John Cameron (who provided the film's score). Danny Devito turns up in perhaps his first major film role as a pirate, along with Don Stroud (the villain in "Coogan's Bluff"). Mark Lester's early '70s haircut (or lack of one) is more in keeping with then-mod fashion than with the early 19th century (he had a much shorter coif in the Dickens musical "Oliver"). Mel Blanc provides the voice of the parrot. Filmed in Yugoslavia. Odd picture. Should have been much better. Douglas is a maverick actor, but he plays this one verrrry broadly. At least he seemed to have been genuinely enjoying himself.
