Rescue from Gilligan's Island

Rescue from Gilligan's Island ★½ 1978

Fifteen years after the cancellation of “Gilligan's Island” came this TV movie that reunited the principal cast (minus Tina Louise's original Ginger) and finally depicted the rescue of the castaways. When a tsunami sweeps the group's huts into the sea, they're discovered by the Coast Guard and return to civilization. Somewhat changed by their experiences on the island, the castaways face difficulties assimilating with modern life, while at the same time Gilligan is pursued by Russian spies sent to retrieve an information disc that landed on the island. This awkward return to the lame jokes and Keaton-inspired slapstick of the TV series seemed out of date even during the original broadcast, but the cast's chemistry is still evident. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., Russell Johnson, Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Dawn Wells, Judith Baldwin; D: Leslie Martinson; W: David Harmon, Sherwood Schwartz, Elroy Schwartz, Al Schwartz; C: Robert Primes; M: Gerald Fried.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
