Hero's Island is a 1962 American action film written and directed by Leslie Stevens. It stars James Mason, Neville Brand, Kate Manx, Rip Torn, Warren Oates and Brendan Dillon. It was released on September 16, 1962, by United Artists.[1][2]

The film, set in the early 18th century, is about a poor family homesteading on a remote "Carolina" island, leading to encounters with seagoing vagabonds, good and bad. It was filmed on location on California's Santa Catalina Island, which is much hillier and more arid than any actual part of the coastal Carolinas.
