Interesting how opinions on the 1974 film have changed over the last 42 years.
Back in 1974 there were those who thought the film was moderately good but did not compare well with the 1963 BBC series in black & white.
However we do know that AR thought that the 1963 series was a "ghastly mess" with attempts to introduce more characters, ham acting and the BBC's desire to blow up the approach to the secret harbour to make filming easier.
However my faded memory of the 1963 series still compares favourably with the 1974 film in spite of AR's thoughts on the former.
AR died in 1968, otherwise it would have been interesting, had he survived, to learn of his thoughts on the 1974 film.
Not sure that I want to comment on the 2016 film until I have seen it.
