SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON (Released to Theaters USA 1960)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

Swiss Family Robinson—good child/adult share—has appeal for a wide audience range and its own unique story that includes shipwreck and pirates. It’s a light watch with good island scenery and enough domesticated and wild animals to make a good story. The conclusion is perfectly suited to the story. Watch for Tommy Kirk as Ernst Robinson.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a simple, one time watch for a lazy afternoon with the family. If an audience has not seen the movie for awhile,  it is still watchable.
