Swiss Family Robinson (1960)

Ken Annakin directs John Mills, Dorothy McGuire and Janet Munro in this blockbuster family adventure where a shipwrecked clan colonise their island paradise.

One of the most popular films of its day, this is pretty much non-stop peril or larks. Invariably though every scene involves shrill, bland child actors or animal cruelty. I didn’t feel guilty napping during the middle act. Movies like this exist to fill rainy afternoons in the summer holidays.
