User Reviews

This film should be issued as a video

"The Cay" is one of the best books to have been written for children in recent years,and it is now used as a school text in Britain and America.The 1974 T.V.production,starring James Earl Jones as Timothy and Alfred Lutter as Philip,was an excellent film version of this story,and it is a pity that it has not yet appeared as a video.Schools,I know,would make use of it,and its many fans would buy it.It is still going the rounds of European T.V.networks,and I last saw it on Polish T.V.in 2000.
