A sad effort from the Disney studios focusing on the adventures of two young boys, one black, one white, in search of buried treasure along the Florida coast during the mid-19th Century. Accompanying the kids are three adults, Hackett, Ustinov, and Foxworth, also after the treasure for
their own personal reasons. Most of the perils on the trip are the result of continual pursuit by evil Morrow and his gang, but they are not enough of a threat to keep the treasure hunters from pursuing their goal. Very uncustomary for Disney are the slack special effects and process shots, the
use of which hurts the continuity of an already sluggish story.
