Not sure that I would be too concerned about the lack of a sculling notch.
The dinghy in which I attempted to learn to sail, in South West Ireland, had no notch. A rowlock was removed from the safety chain and transferred to a hole in the centre of the stern. My fisherman instructor said it was far more effective than a notch.
The film may be watchable as an adventure story in its own right; perhaps expecting it to be true to the book 87 years on it too much to expect. A good version was in the BBC series in black & white days.
