"The Adventures of Long John Silver" was based on the Robert Louis Stevenson pirate character from his novel 'Treasure Island'. Reprieving the title role that he had made very much his own in Disney's first complete live action movie was the incomparable Robert Newton. The setting was in Portobello on the Spanish Main, where Silver and Hawkins worked for British Governor Strong in order to thwart the advance of the treacherous Spaniards and thereby keep the island safe in the hands of The Crown. There was still time fora little treasure hunting although Silver's favourite way of spending his off-duty hours was in Purity Pinker's Inn, where he could swig away on the local brew.
The Eviction (1956) Miss Purity's (Connie Gilchrist) tavern is ordered to be closed by the Governor (Pat Twohill), acting under instructions from an English lord. But the lord is an impostor in the employ of the Spanish. It's down to Long John to thwart this fiendish Spanish invasion plan.
The Pink Pearl (1957) Gentleman Richard Thorpe (John Bonney) asks Long John (Robert Newton) to help search for his brother, last known to be on an island occupied by the Spanish. At the island, they learn that the Spanish are forcing the natives to give up the island's source of pink pearls.
The Tale of a Tooth (1957) When Long John Silver develops a toothache, he is obliged to liberate a cunning dentist who has been taken hostage by the Spanish.
The Ship 'O the Dead (1957) No-one believes Jim Hawkins (Kit Taylor) when he tells a tale of seeing a ship in a bay with a lifeless crew. Jim and Long John Silver realize that the Spanish have captured the ship and killed the crew in order to snatch a load of gold.
