Long John Silver – filmed in Australia four years after Walt Disney’s version of Treasure Island – had Robert Newton reprising his role as the title character.
Long John rescued the Governor of Jamaica’s daughter and then returned to Treasure Island for more treasure. Jim Hawkins (Kit Hawkins), who apparently never returned to the UK, was also along for the ride.
On Treasure Island, Silver had to deal with another pirate captain named “El Toro” Mendoza (Lloyd Berrell) and Israel Hands (Rod Taylor) from his old crew.
The success of this film led to a TV series with both Newton and Gilchrist and young Kip Taylor as Jim Hawkins.
