I was at work when I watched this first. Couldn't listen, well, because I was at work. When the paper boat in the a ground started moving, it freaked me out! This is the first time I've ever heard the full song. Pretty cool. Lots of history with the song.

Thanks for posting it.

Ya I like it a lot. Once I had read the lyrics I realized how dark and piratical it was !! That made me like it even more. I gotta learn a verse or 2 so I can lead my mates in song !! Its like gangster rap of the 1700s or pirate heavy metal. Lol !!

A really fine effort - a real ship, Charlton Heston as a memorable Long John Silver, Christopher Lee as Pew. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks for that post Hobbit.

I completely agree with you guys...the best film version of Treasure Island ever. I have it on DVD and have watched it many times. It never gets old. The soundtrack is terrific as well

Seeing Blak Bart's thread made me think of the film immediately.

Interestingly, the ship used in the film to represent Hispaniola, was Bounty, the ship custom built for the 1960 Marlon Brando version of Mutiny on the Bounty.

This was the same ship tragically and senselessly lost in Superstorm Sandy a few years ago.

Here is a photo of Bounty in her death throes:

I had never seen it, went out and rented it and had great time watching it. Been listening to the commentary by Heston's son, who directed it. They sailed the Bounty down to Jamaica where they filmed the island portion. Rest done in England on location or at Pinewood studios. Heston read the book to his son many times when he was a boy so he chose it to film as his debut effort. Said he remembered his father reading about Pew's tap tap tapping stick instilling a sense of dread. I can relate. The song "15 men" which Stevenson wrote only the two verses that appear in the book, was fleshed out into a long poem by Young Ewing Allison called "Derelict" in 1891. Dead Man's Chest is thought to be Caribbean island, small with no water, on which Blackbeard marooned a number of crew leaving them only with a supply of rum believing they would all kill each other, but 15 survived. Stevenson supposedly read the phrase "dead mans chest" in a previous pirate novel and that became his inspiration for his story, published as a serial in a popular journal in 1881/2. There are a number of historical references in the novel as Stevenson was familiar with both pirate history and fictional treatments. A classic.

A big thanks to blak bart for this thread.
