|Description:||This Mexican production closely follows Stevenson's narrative. Dan O'Herlihy received an Oscar nomination when this film was released in the US in 1954. Except for two brief hallucinations (one when he is delirious and the other when he is drunk) the hero goes blandly about the business of running a home away from home-building a stockade, fetching water, hewing wood, raising wheat, and baking bread. The loneliness and longing of Crusoe are suggested largely through his monologic narrative.|
