Treasure Island DVD
Very good; it brought back memories from my childhood of a long-unseen movie.

Movie making sure has changed!
Wow! What a window into a different time... on a different planet. The B&W footage of the pristine coast of California is great. The subtle and no-so-subtle double entendres are a hoot.
Seeing Gary Cooper as a young teenager is a delight. The Movie follows the book fairly well and has many early movie stars that went on to very illustrious careers in screen and stage play. I used the movie as a support for a study of the classic novel.Read full review...
The treasure of Treasure Island
This is the classic movie of the Robert Louis Stevenson book, Treasure Island, finally out on DVD. Wallace Beary & Jackie Cooper are far superior to the Disney version with Robert Newton and a goody-too-shoes boy actor. Like many classic movies, this one follows the book very closely. A must see for any Treasure Island or Long John Silver fan.
The other entries on the DVD are worthless.Read full review...
Berry is the best Long John--The orginal is still the best.The squire was overacted--sissy/silly yet could and would fight
WELL, I KNOW ITS A GOOD MOVIE BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE. THE DVD I PURCHASED FROM MIDWEST MEDIA WAS TERRIBLE. IT STOPPED HALF WAY THROUGH AND I TRIED TO CONTACT MIDWEST MEDIA BUT GOT THE RUNAROUND.SO DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM MIDWEST MEDIA--- GO TO THE STORE .Read full review...
