Fortunes of Captain Blood is a Misfortune for Viewers **
24 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The dashing Louis Hayward, who was once married to Ida Lupino, was no Errol Flynn and that's one of the many problems in this very disappointing 1950 film.

Even the so called swashbuckling scenes lack luster. Part of the problem may be attributed to the fact that this film was in black and white.

Patricia Medina's role as a selfish niece, who changes course real fast after falling for Peter Blood, comes on too quickly. In many of the scenes, Miss Medina, an excellent actress, looks like she is in pain or in deep depression. I would probably join her if I had been in this production as well.

As always, George MacReady plays a sinister character quite well.

The slaves in this film don't exactly look like they have suffered under slavery for too long.
