Man Friday (1975)

Marooned on a beautiful South Seas island with a black man, Crusoe declares himself 'master' and throws Friday into a cave when he rebels. Friday escapes and leaves Crusoe, who soon discovers he needs Friday's companionship and welcomes him back. A slave ship comes to the island and put them in peril, but in a violent battle, they defeat the ship. After many difficulties, they build a seaworthy raft and sail to Friday's island. Unable to adapt, Crusoe is destined to live out his life isolated and alone.
