You cast your vote for your favorite 1960′s live action film and the votes were so close, we will show 1960′s SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON as our December Throwback Thursday film on the 11th at 7pm.

SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON is a 1960 British-American feature film starring John Mills, Dorothy McGuire, James MacArthur, Janet Munro and Tommy Kirk in a tale of a shipwrecked family building an island home, based on the 1812 novel Der Schweizerische Robinson (THE SWISS ROBINSON) by Johann David Wyss. The film was directed by Ken Annakin, shot outside of London and was the first wide screen Disney film shot with Panavision lenses.

A family on their way to New Guinea is chased by pirates into a storm. The captain and crew abandon the ship leaving the family shipwrecked off an uninhabited island. Father (John Mills) and his two eldest sons Fritz and Ernest (Tommy Kirk and James MacArthur) salvage as much as they can from the wreck. They construct a tree house home on the island while the youngest boy Francis (Kevin Corcoran) investigates the wildlife and starts an impressive collection of animals including a young elephant, a capuchin monkey and two Great Danes. The boys, build inventions to provide modern amenities to the family such as drawing water and preserving food. Mother (Dorothy McGuire) prays to be rescued.
