Fantasy Island (1977)

Fantasy Island (1977)

On a tropical island, the mysterious white-clad Mr. Roarke greets visitors each week to his luxurious resort as they arrive by plane. But Roarke doesn't just offer hotel service, but the chance for guests to indulge in their most desired fantasy. But the fantasies rarely turn out as planned for the recipients, who end up learning something valuable about their past, present, or future. How Roarke can grant all these fantasies, many of which involve time travel and other near-supernatural powers, is never explained. Nor is Roarke's background ever clarified. However, he does have the help of his loyal servant Tattoo.

On a happier note, two orphaned children get the chance to choose ideal parents after making an exciting excursion by balloon to an uncharted part of the island.
