User review:

I saw this film as a double bill with ‘The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad’ back in 1974, with my father when I was growing up in Sutton Surrey. As an 8 year old it had an enduring impact on me. I then remember seeing it again in 1980 one Monday afternoon on TV – which confirms it was broadcast on British television at least once. I’m still searching for a copy on DVD which I believe is available now after all these years. It’s a shame that this film of a boys survival & a fathers determination to find him has been largely forgotten now. It was powerful as a children’s film, but certainly rises above a lot of the pointless movies made for children these days. I’m looking forward to finding a copy very soon.

    Can’t rate this one – I haven’t seen it yet. Unfortunately, I must rate it or this survey will flush all of my other ratings, so I’ll give it a crappy rating to indicate that I abhor surveys that flush all of your opinions unless you answer every question as expected. Having an “I decline to rate this movie” option, or “none of the above” would be helpful.
