    Bad Treasure Island

    A horrible version of treasure island.Orson wells makes a horrid,fat version of Long John Silver. Also the music is terrible and you cant hear the actors voices.Jim Hawkins is played by a girl I think. Just a terrible version of a great, classic story.

    Horrible - Get the 1934 version

    This is a ridiculous Disney remake complete with Jim Hawkins mother who looks like a pin-up and a highly unlikeable Long John Silver played by Orson Wells (!). Get the 1934 version starring Wallace Beery instead.
