Fair. Overall the cast was good, especially the boy who played Jim Hawkins. However the presentation was choppy and Orson Welled lacked the heart and enthusiasm expected for such a role. Most of the time his mutterings were unintelligible and so a lot of who his character is was lost. He was greatly miscast in this role. Should have been much better.

Orson Welles and Lionel Stander ... what a combo. Unfortunately Welles mumbles his way through this production and pretty much shanghais the fun out of existence. Need subtitles to understand what on earth he's saying. Skip this and watch the version with Robert Newton, who is far better in the Long John Silver role.

That classic of children's literature is made into a masterpiece by the use of a very good actor for Jim, the kid, and another very good actor for Lonjohn Silver. Orson Welles in this second part cuts a brilliant performance that gives the film its momentum and its depth. This film, this story is still very attractive for young children, or not so young children, with the question of how young children can invest themselves in adult adventures and enterprises. Children must not be cut off from adult society. They learn more by being involved in this adult society than by simply going to school. How can this be achieved ? We can dream of various means after the film.
