Pirate Pete has kidnapped Mickey and Minnie and has them tied up. As Pete prepares to have his way with Minnie, Mickey escapes and gets a swordfish off the wall; a swordfight with Pete ensues. Mickey gets out of the cabin and on deck; he hoists Minnie up onto the mast. Pete summons his crew, and Mickey fights them off with a cannon, shooting pots and pans, a stove, and ultimately a harpoon before winning Minnie and the ship back for good. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Mickey channels Douglas Fairbanks
16 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shanghaied (1934) is fun as all get out. Mickey is never more entertaining than when he's the underdog action hero and that is precisely what he is here.

The short wastes no time to get us into the action, starting in medias res with Mickey and Minnie tied up and at the mercy of pirate captain Pete. Just as Pete tries forcing himself on Minnie, Mickey breaks free of his ropes and the two rivals engage in a hilarious duel with gags galore. The humor is well thought out and rivals the likes of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd.

Not particularly or groundbreaking, but Shanghaied is still tons of fun. The entertainment factor has not eroded with time.
