Treasure Island Reviews

Many better have been written, but the strangely fascinating something that is Robert Louis Stevenson is only in Treasure Island. Only a hint of this something is in Mr. Tourneur's screen version, and that hint is in the first few feet.

Those least familiar with Stevenson's story will enjoy it most, because, while it has many excellent scenes and some good acting, it falls so far short of its original that any comparison of the two must emphasize its defects.
