Mr. Robinson Crusoe

38. MR. ROBINSON CRUSOE (1932-usa). With douglas Fairbanks sr. music by Alfred NEWMAN. Shot as a silent film with titles, but released as a sound feature with music, haunting sound effects, but no lip-synch dialogue. One Of the most enjoyable films Fairbanks ever made, and a tour-de-force that only he could have starred in. A wealthy sportsman bets S1000 he can live on a primitive tropical island for one month with none Of the comforts Of civilization. Stunningly filmed in Tahiti, Fiji and Samoa. The way “Crusoe” rebuilds the island is a joy to behold. Highly recommended for the entire family. 70 minutes. Drama-Adventure
