Ten boys and a dog are shipwrecked on an island in the Pacific. After a storm they discover another boat has been shipwrecked on the island. They make friends with two of the survivors, a nurse and ship's carpenter, but discover there are three other survivors who are ruthless mutineers. The children manage to outwit the mutineers, the carpenter builds them a boat and they sail home. —Paul Gerard Kennedy
Should be critiqued against others of its time and genre.
It must be remembered that this was a low budget production with no known stars and that it was made in 1969 almost wholly at Artransa Studios in Sydney. It was a school holiday matinee and did not purport to be any more. To compare it with the hollywood childrens movies of the day is unhelpful and without merit.
