Treasure Island (1952, B&W): Sword-wielding Billy Bones barges into an inn, toting a treasure map. Demanding a room, Bones befriends young JIm Hawkins, paying the boy to keep his eye out for pirates. When some suspicious men descend upon the inn, Hawkins escapes with the map. The boy boards a ship to search for gold on Treasure Island, but dreaded scoundrel Long John Silver takes control of the ship. Realizing that the one-legged Silver can't be trusted, Hawkins is plunged into a dangerous race to reach the treasure first!

Schaffner went on to become a mainstream Hollywood film director, most remembered for Planet of the Apes (1968), Patton (1970) and Papillon (1973).
