When notorious pirate Henry Morgan is made governor of Jamaica, he enlists the help of some of his former partners in ridding the Carribean of Buccaneers. When one of them apparently abducts the previous governor's pretty daughter and joins up with the rebels, things are set for a fight. Written by

About 2/3 of the way into the movie, after Lady Denby exits the cabin to come out on deck, she is standing next to, and then directly behind Jamie. She is standing so close as to be touching him. The camera angle then changes to show her at least a foot behind Jamie, no longer touching him. 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.

Well, this one really came as a surprise with Tyrone Power superb in a decent pirate movie - all tongue in cheek but in great fun. With lovely Maureen O'Hara playing the usual hard to get girl wanted by all, but destined for only one, everyone in the movie has a rollicking good time, and why shouldn't they when you consider some of the supporting stars, particularly Laird Cregar as Sir Henry Morgan and George Sanders "hamming" it up in his usual evil way. The Technicolor is magnificent, the settings superb, and as this film was made long before computer-generated effects, it was quite brilliantly done. The story was very predictable but who cares, as it represents great escapist entertainment for nearly a couple of hours!
