Storyline

It's Christmas time, but Jim Hawkins, an orphan himself, is too depressed to participate in the holiday festivities. He's just met the children living in Miss Willoughby's orphanage, where they not only don't celebrate Christmas, but aren't permitted to speak to other children. Long John Silver takes matters into his own hands, and arranges for his crew to spirit the children away to Polly Purity's Christmas party, while holding Miss Willoughby at gunpoint. Long John learns that Miss Willoughby had a very stern upbringing herself and convinces her that fun and games must be part of a child's upbringing. He convinces her to join the merrymakers. Written by David Bassler

Not much in terms of a story but it a Christmas time special. In this short film Lonely spinster Hanoria Willoughby (Neva Carr-Glyn) runs the town's orphanage with harsh discipline, but when young Jim Hawkins (Kit Taylor) meets the sad orphans, he asks Miss Purity (Connie Gilchrist), Reverend Monaster (Hans Stern) and Long John Silver (Robert Newton) to help the children celebrate Christmas.

By the numbers that;s for sure. Not great but it does what it sets out to do and that's to entertain. Family safe!
