1949 directed by Robert Stevens. Adaptation for television of Edgar Allen Poe's A Cask of Amontillado, set in post World-War Two Italy and starring Romney Brent as Montressor and Bela Lugosi as the doomed Fortunato.

Poor Fortunato...he should have used Auto-Light.

1954 directed by Byron Haskin starring Robert Newton as Long John and Kit Taylor as Jim Hawkins, with Connie Gilchrist, Lloyd Berrell, Grant Taylor, Rod Taylor and Harvey Adams. When Long John discovers that rival pirate Mendoza has captured a ship that has Jim Hawkins on it, he devises a plan to rescue him. And of course, to also get some treasure. Nice Technicolor picture with plenty of “aarghs.”
