Trivia

Walt Disney considered putting in a brief animated sequence, as he had with his previous live action movies, Song of the South (1946) and So Dear to My Heart (1948). The animated sequence, "Reynard the Fox" would have been a story told to Jim by Long John Silver. Ultimately, Disney decided to leave out the "Reynard" tale, but the concept art developed by Disney's animators for the sequence later became the basis for Robin Hood (1973). See more »

Goofs

Throughout the film the frizzens were often open and the flashpans exposed on the supposed flintlock pistols and muskets, but the guns fired anyway. These were obviously stage guns, but as a factual point the frizzen must be closed on the pan and there must be a poof of smoke before a flintlock gun will fire. See more »

Disneys first live-action film
27 April 2001 | by alkboroughSee all my reviews

Excellent film adaptation of the famous novel made in England at Denham Film Studios and using much of the Denham lake and the river Colne in the location sequences. Wonderful 50s technicolour and matte shots from Peter Ellenshaw to enhance the scenery. Robert Newton in great form as Long John Silver and Bobby Driscoll equally good as Jim Hawkins - not to mention the fine British cast of top rate character actors The latest Disney video is supposed to show the original full version BUT this is not the case - for one thing the death of Pugh under the coach wheels is left out as well as the other sequences cut for the '70s re-issue of the film. This is a great shame. I am not sure whether or not the DVD recent release is also produced minus these scenes
