TREASURE ISLAND IN
OUTER SPACE

 

This Italian mini-series was a poor man's version of a classic tale adapted to a science-fiction backdrop. Anthony Quinn and Ernest Borgnine both had the misfortune to star in it. "Deeply flawed, yet highly enjoyable," is how one commentator has described it. It was shown during the Easter holidays in an early morning slot to catch the younger audiences when they weren't sufficiently wide awake to take avoiding action.
