Rocky and Puddin' Head are waiting tables at an inn on Tortuga when a letter given them by Lady Jane for delivery to Martingale gets switched with a treasure map. Kidd and Bonney kidnap them to Skull Island to find said treasure.
In this unhistorical account, Capt. William Kidd is already a clever, ruthless pirate when, in 1699, he tricks the king into commissioning him as escort for a treasure ship from India. He enlists a crew of pardoned cutthroats...and Orange Povey, whom Kidd once abandoned on a reef and hoped never to see again. Of course, Kidd's intentions are treacherous. But there's more to gunner Adam Mercy than meets the eye. Written by

I've been a fan of Randolph Scott for some time. Even though it's easy to predict the outcome in most of his movies, I find them extremely entertaining and sometimes thrilling. This is not an exception.
Charles Laughton (as Captain Kidd himself), Randolph Scott (as Adam Mercy) and actually John Carradine (Orange Povey) all three performs in this exciting movie about Captain Kidd and his adventure around Madagaskar in the sixteen hundreds. The acting is great and the script is stunning. This film would not be as good as it is without Laughton who is absolutely brilliant as Mr Kidd.
Of course in black and white but that doesn't matter! It's very very nicely done and truly great acting! See it!
