Goofs

As Jim Hawkins is climbing down the mast rigging after shooting Israel Hands, the ship is shown adrift and moving toward the shore. But in the overhead shot looking down toward Jim, there is no indication of movement seen in the water below and the ship appears to be stationary. Later, when Long John Silver and Jim are being rowed out to the ship, at least one shot of the two in the row boat's stern similarly shows no sign of the boat moving through the water, but merely floating in place.

Absolutely great pirate flick
5 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

if you have ever read the book by Robert Louis Stevenson, you will truly enjoy this movie. Robert Newton is the perfect Long John Silver. I cannot imagine another actor living up to the role the way he did. Sure, the acting may not be the best, and the screen effects may be bad, but you have to remember when it was made. It is a very good movie for its time, and quite an enjoyable one in mine. If you enjoy seafaring movies- See this one. If you like pirate flicks- this one will have you arrgging all night long.

When I think of Long John silver, I think of one quote, "Fortune sits on the shoulder of him what schemes."
