Kidnapped

Robert Louis Stevenson's swashbuckler of feuding Scots and foul play in the 18th century has lost a lot of its punch in the screen adaptation. Kidnapped is only mildly entertaining, telling its story with a too leisurely pace that keeps things at a walk for 81 minutes.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckler of feuding Scots and foul play in the 18th century has lost a lot of its punch in the screen adaptation. Kidnapped is only mildly entertaining, telling its story with a too leisurely pace that keeps things at a walk for 81 minutes.

The Stevenson classic concerns a young Scot who comes to claim an inheritance from his uncle. Latter has him kidnapped and shipped off to slavery but lad is saved by a political adventurer.

Roddy McDowall portrays the young Scot and does well enough in the role. (Actor also served as associate producer with Ace Herman on the film.) Dan O’Herlihy is the political adventurer and Sue England the pert young miss who joins the safari across Scotland.
