Full movie description "Hero's Island":In 1718 a recently freed family of indentured workers inherits the small uninhabited Bull Island off the Carolina coast. The family consist of husband and wife, one son, and a second son who they bought as a baby. The local fishermen who were already using the island think they own the island and attempt to force the family to leave, during which the husband is killed. The conflict over the island escalates as more people including a castaway, a fugitive from justice, and hired heavies join each side. Not everyone is who they seem to be or claim to be.
Reviews of the Hero's IslandWith Catalina standing in for an island off the South Carolina coast in the early 18th century Hero Island according to the Films Of James Mason was shot within three weeks. No sets involved as it was all outdoors and more than likely the weather was cooperative.
Hero's Island finds Brendan Dillon, Kate Manx and their two small boys Morgan Mason and Darby Hinton and friend Warren Oates are there to settle the island as a condition of having worked off their indentured servitude. But three nasty fisherman are already there Rip Torn, Harry Dean Stanton and Robert Sampson and they mean to keep their island with no strangers. Dillon is killed right off and the others have to fend for their survival.
Help does come the sea in the form of James Mason whose been cast adrift by members of his crew. He proves to be their salvation especially after the fisherman go for help from Neville Brand who is a plantation overseer on the mainland.
Hero's Island is a tale of survival and a study of the character of all involved. The mixture of accents is rather weird with only Mason sounding like he truly belonged in the film. Kate Manx is interesting as she is a pious religious woman, but when her family is in danger, mother love overcomes all.
James Mason said that the producers had high hopes for the film. But the film did not do well at the box office.
Still it's an interesting work.
