The film, alas not me. This is a wonderful old story, which was used as a base for the 1980s television series 'Tales of the Gold Monkey'. I bought this film because of this link, my two children, 9 and 12, love TGM and I thought this would be a nice foray into black and white. I was right, they loved it. This is a classic story with high adventure in the days before CGI. It's nice to see that, given the chance, the younger generation can appreciate a good story and leave their imaginations to fill in the details.
