Storyline

Doctor Gulliver is poor, so nothing - not even his charming fiancée Elisabeth - keeps him in the town he lives. He signs on to a ship to India, but in a storm he's washed off the ship and ends up on an island, which is inhibitated by very tiny people. After he managed to convince them he's harmless and is accepted as one of their citizens, their king wants to use him in war against a people of giants. Compared to them, even Gulliver is a gnome.

In 1699 England, handsome doctor Kerwin Mathews (as Lemuel Gulliver) is set to marry pretty June Thorburn (as Elizabeth), but worries about supporting her in poverty. Hoping to make his fortune, Mr. Mathews joins a treasure-seeking ship's crew. After a stormy shipwreck, Mathews washes up on the sands of Lilliput, a surreal land inhabited by tiny people. Due to his large size, the Lilliputians fear and distrust Mathews. However, he negotiates a release from bondage and finds allies with little Lee Patterson (as Reldresal) and beautiful blonde Jo Morrow (as Gwendolyn)...

Mathews begins to build a large boat, hoping to return home and find his fiancée. But there is big trouble in Lilliput for their newest citizen. Mathews is caught up in local politics when the Lilliputians enlist his help in their war with another island of tiny people. The people of Blefuscu crack open their eggs at the larger end, in direct conflict with the Lilliputians method of opening eggs at the shorter end. The yolk's on war (as noted in writer Jonathan's Swift's original work). Later, Mathews' "Gulliver" finds his world turned upside down in a land of giants...

This is watered-down Swift, but it's still a great adventure for children of all ages.
