Trivia

The film was originally to be made in Egypt, but it was decided to film in Australia instead to lower production costs. Egypt's relations with the West did not really begin to deteriorate until 1955, when the Nasser regime publicly recognized Communist China's claim to Taiwan and began importing arms from the Soviet Union via the Soviet client state of Czechoslovakia.

Pirates make a western and create bilge
19 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

This film is a great example of what happens when Hollywood hacks decide to take a classic character from literature and prostitute it for all it's worth.

So, cobble together a script full of "arrrghs" and "belays", hire a few props and stuntmen from a western and, by heck, while you're at it write in a hoedown scene to boot.

Invent a love interest for Long John Silver who has all the characteristics of a 19th century American mom.

Transport it to what looks to be the Australian bush and pretend that it's a tropical island.

The only thing going for this bucket of bilge is Robert Newton.
