Young Jim Hawkins sails for Treasure Island with a crew that includes one-legged Long John Silver. Most of the sailors are loyal men, but some (including Long John) are pirates in search of riches. Once on the island, Jim meets an old hermit named Ben Gunn who claims that Jim is part of the pirate crew seeking his treasure. He denies this. The pirates then appear and Long John forces Gunn to take him and his men to the treasure, which is hidden in a cave on the other side of the island.Loyal seamen track them to Gunn’s cave. A fight ensues and Long John’s pirates are defeated. Ben Gunn and his chests filled with gold and jewels are returned safely to civilization.
