grand, rollicking Disney adventure with Hayley Mills

IN SEARCH OF THE CASTAWAYS is a grand, rollicking adventure from Walt Disney, starring Hayley Mills as well as Maurice Chevalier and Wilfred Hyde-White. It's loosely based on the little-known Jules Verne novel "Captain Grant's Children".

Mary Grant (Hayley Mills) and her younger brother Robert (Keith Hamshere), with Professor Paganel (Maurice Chevalier) discover a note in a bottle that has been written by Mary's father, a ship's Captain who has been lost at sea. They seek out Captain Grant's employer Lord Glenarvon (Wilfred Hyde-White) in hopes of setting out on a mission to rescue him.

Their search takes them on many thrilling, death-defying adventures, culminating in a hair-raising encounter with maoris in New Zealand. The movie also features three catchy Sherman Brothers tunes ("Enjoy It!", "Let's Climb" and "Castaway, Castaway").

Keith Hamshere originated the title role in the 1960 London premiere of OLIVER!. Hayley Mills is lovely as the spunky and forthright Mary Grant. Co-starring Michael Anderson Jr, George Sanders and Jack Gwillim.
