Disney's Swiss Family Robinson from 1960 is a classic desert island tale about a Swiss family escaping the tyranny of Napoleon Bonaparte's ever growing empire and filled with evil pirates, dangerous jungle animals and many different varieties of hats woven from banana leaves! Sweeties was OBSESSED with this movie when she was little and nearly wore the bootleg VHS version we had as kids. Nowadays, the movie comes with (what is becoming an often seen modifier from Disney+) warnings about culturally insensitive portrayals and stories about terrible animal cruelty on the set! Bogus! But hey we still think Fritz is a HOTTIE, question how no one knew Roberta was a girl, and still hate annoying Frances with a passion!
