Amazon.com description: Product Description: For six days the storm had raged wildly, and our situation became more dangerous every hour. Driven out of our course, we no longer knew our position, and the ship had lost her masts and was leaking. Down in our cabin my four sons clung fearfully to their mother, and to all of us it seemed that the end was near... All chance of escape now seemed gone for ever, and I was about to resign myself to certain death, when, turning my eyes southward, I was overjoyed to perceive a coastline stretching along the horizon. Thither, from that time, all my hopes were directed.

So begins the timeless tale of The Swiss Family Robinson, brought to life by acclaimed actor Frank Langella. His film credits include Junior, Dave, and Dracula. He has starred on Broadway in "Amadeus," and "Dracula."
