Felipe de Alba in Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe

1954 NR

This 50th anniversary issue of the 1952 film directed by acclaimed filmmaker Luis Buñuel brings to life Daniel Defoe's classic novel, in which the heroic Robinson Crusoe survives a shipwreck in the 1650s and washes up on a remote island. Crusoe (Dan O'Herlihy) must find a way to be at peace with himself and tap into his reserves of courage as he fights loneliness and a group of cannibals, eventually befriending a savage he names Friday.
