Thank you for the memories Tommy Kirk … December 10, 1941 - September 28, 2021

Tommy Kirk was the last surviving star in the movie Swiss Family Robinson filmed on the island of Tobago in 1959.

Excellent posts with expert research! Really amazing how thorough the information is regarding the shooting sites!

I have two minor corrections from Page 6. The photos showing the Mills family identify the boy child as "Kevin Corcoran" when it is actually Jonathan Mills, son of John Mills and Mary Hayley Bell, brother to Juliet and Hayley.

The photo of Janet Munro on a donkey is later identified as being "Yakima Canutt". It is actually Fess Reynolds, the animal trainer.
