Trivia

This movie is one of a set of six films owned by the estate of Merian C. Cooper, and the rights to show it were caught up in legal red tape. TCM eventually acquired the rights and showed the movie in May 2007. See more »

Goofs

Hilda's name in the ads reads "Madame Hilda Bouverie." In fact, she is not supposed to be married at this point in the movie, and so should have been referred to as "Mademoiselle Hilda Bouverie." See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Clarkson: ...Why, the very foundation of empire is woman's virginity.
Sir Julian Kent: Chastity, madame, chastity. No empire would get very far with virginity.

Stingaree doesn't have much of one.
21 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Highwayman Stingaree ( Richard Dix) is the terror of down under as he plunders travelers and humiliates the local constabulary with his audacious crimes. When he becomes smitten with Hilda Bouverie (Irene Dunne) he risks his freedom to make her a great opera singer.

Preposterous as the plot is in this piece of costume claptrap directed by William Wellman, Dix is dashing, Dunne exhibits a decent set of pipes and Marie Boland remains wonderfully oblivious to give Stingaree a certain degree of life and humor. Wellman directs like he's doing a silent though and the film ends up in an ill fitting time warp between pre-talkie swashbuckler and the musical pairing of Eddy and Mc Donald.
