20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954): Climb aboard the Nautilus and into a strange undersea world of spellbinding adventure! Kirk Douglas, Paul Lukas, and Peter Lorre star as shipwrecked survivors taken captive by the mysterious Captain Nemo, brilliantly portrayed by James Mason. Wavering between genius and madness, Nemo has launched a deadly crusade across the seven seas. But can the captive crew expose his evil plan before he destroys the world?

Swiss Family Robinson (1960): A family fleeing from the despotic regime of Napoleon is chased off course by a band of pirates. They are then shipwrecked on a tropical island where they begin a new and adventurous life. Based on the book by Johann Wyss.

Davy Crockett (1954): Fess Parker captured the hearts of millions with his strong, confident portrayal of the legendary king of the wild frontier. There's never been a folk hero quite like Davy Crockett, and you'll see why when you watch him 'grin' down a bear, battle an Indian chief in a tomahawk duel, and fight for freedom at the Alamo.

Kidnapped (1960): Cheated out of his rightful inheritance after being kidnapped, young David Balfour joins forces with daring adventurer Alan Breck Stewart and together they flee across the Highlands to evade the King's redcoat forces...

Treasure Island (1950): Authentic locales and musket-roaring action set the stage for the stouthearted heroics of young Jim Hawkins and the skullduggery of that wily, one-legged pirate, Long John Silver.

Big Red (1962): An orphaned boy learns responsibility, commitment and friendship when he is hired byi a heartless, wealthy sportsmani to train his handsome Irish setter, Big Red. Soon, the boy and the dog become inseparable, much to thei owner's disapproval and the boy is fired. But the bonds of loyalty are tested when Big Red runs away and all hope is lost of ever finding him again. The strong bond that exists among man, boy and dog lead them into a series of adventures, setting the course for a life-or-death battle with an unexpected adversary...

The Incredible Journey (1963): The Incredible Journey is the heartfelt story of three beloved animals in search of their home and family. Two dogs and a cat - Bodget, Luath, and Tao - are left with a loving friend 200 miles away from home. But they miss their human family. So they leave only to find their way home full of danger! A lynx, a mean farm dog, and a fiercely protective mother bear are among the obstacles in their treacherous path.

Darby O'Gill and The Little People (1959): Take a wee bit of ancient folklore, mix in some spectacular special effects and a magical cast (including Sean Connery) - and you've got one of the most enchanting fantasies of all time! A frisky old storyteller named Darby O'Gill is desperately seeking the proverbial pot of gold. There's just one tiny thing standing in his way: a 21-inch leprechaun named King Brian. In order to get the gold, Darby must match his wits against the shrewd little trickster -- which proves no small task, indeed!

Island at the Top of the World (1974): In 1907, Prof. Ivarsson finds himself on a strange mission. He has been persuaded by Sir Anthony Ross, to undertake a search of the Arctic for his lost son. Two clues remain; a page from an old Hudson Bay Company journal mentioning a hidden island "far beyond land's end where the whales go to die", and a curious map of curved whalebone.

Greyfriar's Bobby (1961): The true story of a Skye terrier who, after a vigil at his master's grave for fourteen years, became well-known throughout Scotland, and eventually received a gold licence from the Lord Provost of Edinburgh.

yeah - very dated films.

If they had put 'The world's greatest athlete' in this collection i would be tempted.
Never heard of some of these!

My now 18 yr old loved several of these films and they were watched as often as any of the other videos available, particularly the Swiss Family Robinson. I even had to dress him up as one of the pirates from it one hallowe'en. No parrots or black hats for him, it was bandana, hoop earrings, twirling moustache and evil grin, lol.

Kids might surprise you, they don't need hi tech stuff all the time.

Good collection of movies at a nice price!
