Storyline

In 1700, the pirates of Madagascar menace the India trade; British officer Brian Hawke has himself cashiered, flogged, and set adrift to infiltrate the pirate "republic." There, Hawke meets lovely Spitfire Stevens, a pirate captain in her own right, and the sparks begin to fly; but wooing a pirate poses unique problems. Especially after he rescues adoring young Princess Patma from a captured ship. Meanwhile, Hawke's secret mission proceeds to an action-packed climax.

Trivia

In her autobiography "'Tis Herself", Maureen O'Hara says that Errol Flynn was always prepared, always knew his lines, and was a pleasure to work with in the mornings. But he drank throughout the day and by 4pm was in no shape to continue. Even after director George Sherman banned alcohol on the set, O'Hara recalled, Flynn would inject oranges with vodka and eat them in the morning, so that he was drunk by afternoon. O'Hara did all the romantic closeups at the end of the day with a black flag marked "X" to represent Flynn. See more »

The best pirate movie ever!
6 February 1999 | by (Höchstadt, Germany) – See all my reviews

Being the prototype of the classical Errol Flynn adventure movie and having a good story as well as two more brilliant co-stars in Maureen O'Hara (what an exquisite beauty!) and Anthony Quinn, I can only recommend this movie to all those having even the slightest liking for romance and adventure.

Hollywood at its best!
