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.

Sure, it had its shortcomings, and it wasn't as dark as it could have been, but this is certainly the best version of a book that has been retold time after time.

Maybe someday someone will make a better version, but until then, my vote goes to this one.
