TREASURE ISLAND IN
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.
