The original ending was scrapped and a new one shot so that the film would pass the censor. The original ending had both Tyrone Power's and Maureen O'Hara's character jumping into the sea. See more »
About 2/3 of the way into the movie, Jamie and Captain Leach are talking on the deck of Jamie's ship. Lady Denby opens the door to the cabin to observe. This door is then shown several times over the course of the scene and the door is closed. Near the end of the scene Lady Denby is shown closing the door; the same door which had just been shown several times as closed. See more »
This may be an "escapist" movie but it's one of my very favorites: rich technicolor, clever romantic repartee in the script . . . plus Tyrone Power in a red & black outfit "to die for." When old Ty wasn't trying to appear rough and tough with a few hairs and some stray wine drops on his chest, that is (I think they used to shave chests then, along with pit hair).
FUN! This movie proves you don't even have to have a sex scene to get your imagination working and then some.
Throw in some fencing (Tyrone did his own), plenty of tall ships, excellent secondary role actors, including George Sanders and Anthony Quinn. Wow, all I can say is this movie was so good, I bought it so I can see it over and over again.
