This great film features the wonderful acting of Charlton Heston as Long John Silver and a young Christian Bale as Jim Hawkins, along with a fantastic soundtrack. Although not well-known, this marvelous 1990 movie is very true to Robert Louis Stevenson's adventurous novel of pirates and buried treasure.
Long John Silver by Björn Larsson. Image description: illustrated book cover featuring pirate captain Long John Silver in tricorn hat and military-style coat. He carries an old-fashioned pistol in one hand, leaning on a crutch with the other (though his famous wooden leg is not in the picture). He has a blue parrot on one shoulder. His sailing ship rides a swelling ocean behind him.
