Swashbuckling adventure with a wonderful romance thrown in.
In the era when pirates and their freebooter crews still held sway upon the ocean and near the coasts with their fast and well armed ships, a beautiful Frenchwoman is trapped in a marriage to a noble buffoon and tries to find relief from him and his obnoxious friends at court by taking her children to the family's summer estate on the coast. The house is beautiful and isolated but everything seems out of place. Clearly something is amiss with the house and servants and the noble lady realizes she needs to find out why. To her surprise it is used by a swashbuckling pirate and his crew as their private and very secret hideaway. The lady is indignant and decides to intervene. How could she know this would change her life, forever? Basil Rathbone is at his best and Joan Fontaine is a classic leading lady. Great sword fight with Holyywood's master swordsman, Basil battling to the death. If you love a swashbuckler with romance and fun, this is it.
