Long John Silver
This Treasure Island sequel, in which Robert Newton reprises his role as the charismatic Long John Silver, bears a strong resemblance to Disney's 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean. Yes, there are buccaneers, but there's also a mysterious medallion and a ruthless pirate (Lloyd Berrell) who'll do anything -- including abducting young Jim Hawkins (Kit Taylor) and the governor's lovely daughter (Thora Smith) -- to get it. Watch for Rod Taylor in a cameo.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The arrangement on the part of Mr. Rackin is something less than inspired, and poor old Long John gains nothing in stature or fictional scope by being revived."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Ahoy matey! Classic character, so-so sequel."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
