''Swiss Family Robinson'' is a 1960 Disney [[TheFilmOfTheBook Film of the Book]] of Johann Wyss' TheSwissFamilyRobinson. A much more compact and story-driven production than the original, it was a well-reviewed family-friendly hit. It follows the spirit of Wyss' basic [[{{Robinsonade}} Crusoe-but-a-whole-family]] premise while adding a human threat from the beginning to provide the climactic ultimate test of the family's resourcefulness.
