They began by proposing to blow up some of the rocks in the Peel Island harbour, and went on from there According to Arthur their child-actors were ugly, their Captain Flint was ‘common’, their script a travesty of his book, their rural characters were made to talk Cockney, and they introduced some Cockney villains Genia his wife, who was always discouraging about his books when he was writing them missed no chance of telling him he was a fool ever to have consented to the project, and he sadly agreed with her
