Treasure Island is a 1999 film adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island. It was directed by Peter Rowe, and starred Kevin Zegers as Jim Hawkins and Jack Palance as Long John Silver in his final film appearance.
The film was shot in various locations on the Isle of Man, and distributed by Columbia TriStar and Fries Film Group.
The narrative diverges from that of the novel in that Captain Smollett convinces Squire Trelawney and Doctor Livesey to cut Jim out of his rightful share of the treasure and so Jim then teams up with Silver. Smollett, Trelawney and Livesey are killed, and Jim and Silver escape with the treasure.
