A film adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's famous 1883 novel Treasure Island. It was filmed in 1989 on location in Cornwall, England, and in Jamaica, and also at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. Jim Hawkins (Christian Bale) discovers a treasure map and embarks on a journey to find the treasure, but pirates led by Long John Silver (Charlton Heston) have plans to take the treasure for themselves by way of mutiny. The film was an original production filmed and aired by the TNT network, and directed by Fraser Clarke Heston (Charlton Heston's son); it was released theatrically outside the USA. This version of the story is noted for its faithfulness to the book, with much of the dialogue coming directly from it. Also stars Richard Johnson, Oliver Reed and Pete Postlethwaite.
