Quotes from

Long John Silver: Fire that musket and I cuts his throat


Dr. Livesey: When do we sail?
Squire Trelawney: Better ask Captain Smollett. Five days, he's been selecting a crew. Six men, all he's got to show for it.
Dr. Livesey: Cautious, eh?
Squire Trelawney: Cautious? He pries into every seaman's past like a judge at a quarter session. When I threatened to step in, he told me to hire a sea cook, so, by Jove, I did hire a sea cook, right out of his own tavern! Ha ha! Fellow by the name of Long John Silver. I didn't waste my time poring over his credentials. All the credentials I needed was a taste of his ham and his buttered eggs!


Jim Hawkins: Pirates, Captain Flint! Pirates!

Facts about

Howard Douglas replaced actor Caven Watson at short notice.
There have been eight ships named Portland in the Royal navy. Silver is most likely referring to the third one, a 50-gun fourth rate launched in 1744.
One of the first Disney movies to be shown on television, this was first telecast in January 1955, as part of the Disneyland television program. It was the first Disney live-action film to be shown complete on television, in two one-hour installments shown a week apart, rather than having the entire film on a single evening. It was broadcast again in the 1960s, in the same format, after the series had changed its name to "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" and the show had moved to NBC.
