Goofs

When Silver lays out the plan to 'El Toro' Mendoza to waylay Sir Henry's warehouse of jewels and rum, it called for two signal fires to send the governor's warships south as a diversion, while the pirates would head north toward the warehouse. However, only one signal fire was lit, which was the signal for Henry's men to go north as well. See more »

Lonnnnggggg John Silver
21 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Long movie about the famous pirate going back to Treasure Island so he can, well, get some more treasure. Was this trip necessary? Not really, but the studio thought they could scrape in a couple more bucks by exploiting the story. They made less than they thought they would.

Robert Newton goes "Arrrrggghhh" and all that stuff while Connie Gilchrist tries to get him to marry her, in fact, she tries to incapacitate him with a stein of whole milk. It almost works. Good performance by George Simpson-Lyttle as 'Captain Asa MacDougall'. Film offers pretty costumes and lavish sets.

Colorful, but wordy, talky, and windy.
