That pirates used to sail off the coast of California around Catalina is a good excuse to hold a pirate themed party on the island. The centerpiece of the party, which is attended by a cavalcade of Hollywood luminaries, is a musical comedy revue emceed by Pirate Captain Chester Morris, and backed up musically by Charles 'Buddy' Rogers and his California Cavaliers. The party guests are wearing pirate costumes, and all the acts in the revue have a pirate and/or nautical theme. Written by Huggo

Great as historical reference. Saw it on TCM.

Terrific historical document of Hollywood 1935. Not to be regarded for its entertainment value, necessarily, but a real 'curio' from MGM. It almost is a home movie, in a sense, and the close-ups of Randolph Scott and Cary Grant are priceless.
