Sjors en Sjimmie op Pirateneiland
Children’s film about popular cartoon heroes Sjors and Sjimmie.
Sjors and Sjimmie time-travel to the 18th century and find themselves on a deserted pirate island where the inevitable buried treasure lies buried. They are captured by the pirates but manage to escape back to their own time, taking the treasure with them. Director Henk van der Linden situated his film among some very impressive-looking rocks and caves.
Van der Linden is regarded as the pioneer of the Dutch children’s film. He made some forty feature length children’s films between 1952 and 1985, often based on popular children’s books and cartoons, such as 'De avonturen van Dik Trom' (Dik Trom’s adventures), 'Sjors en Sjimmie' (George and Jimmy) and 'Billy Turf' (Billy Bunter). Van der Linden not only directed, produced and edited the film, he also wrote the screenplay, designed the sets and worked behind the camera.
