The story is set in 1674, during the reign of King Charles II. But throughout the film the British flag is the familiar "Union Jack," not in use until the union of England and Scotland in 1707. See more »
You can lower your pistols, Lady Margaret.
Unfortunately, I have no pistols.
Your eyes. I've looked into pistol barrels that are warmer.

This movie is so wonderful. I remember seeing it for the first time when I was around six years of age, and Tyrone Power became my first crush. After seeing the Black Swan I became ridiculously obsessed with pirates. (My mother wondered if there was something wrong with me, considering all the other girls on my block were playing with Barbies and I was watching movies about pirates.) I think the cinematography is just perfectly lovely in this film, and Tyrone Power truly is a great actor. People speak truthfully when they say he did not get the credit he deserved, (much like Johnny Depp) but I deeply respect the late actor, and he captured my heart. If you love films of mutineers, swashbuckling adventure, and roguish characters, then this film is for you. It will sweep you away to an old world where gallantry was sought after and pirates were the scum of the earth.....
