Storyline

In 1690, years have passed since Captain Blood was pardoned by the Crown for his daring deeds against the Spanish on the Spanish Main, and he is living quietly on his plantation in the West Indies, practicing medicine and planning his marriage to Isabella. But his peaceful existence is shattered when Hilary Evans arrives and arrests him on a piracy charge. Somebody has been raiding the islands, and making it appear it was Captain Blood. In order to prove his innocence, Captain Blood has to sail again under the "Jolly Roger." Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

When Captain Blood and the pirates first sail the sky behind the ship looks odd and full of bumps. This is because it was a backdrop painted on the poured concrete side of a sound stage which was built on the edge of the pool. See more »

Goofs

Though the film is set in 1690, one of the characters sings "Largo al factotum" from Rossini's opera "The Barber of Seville," which wasn't written until 1816. See more »

Hayward swashbucklers always a joy to watch
27 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Notice the billing of Louis Hayward swashbucklers after 1948. While always getting top billing he began getting top solo billing. He was one of the first to get a percentage of the profits of his pictures. They did well and Hayward retired comfortably. Often playing dual roles in his films, the dandy by day and swashbuckler by night, he mutes the dual characterizations in "Captain Pirate" and it is sorely missed. The lifted eyebrow, that haughty Louis Hayward laugh, which made him so unique in "Man in the Iron Mask" and "Pirates of Capri" he tempered in later films. However, with his dash and élan, that velvet voice, his decoration for World War II valor giving him extra gravitas, Captain Louis Hayward is always a joy to watch and "Captain Pirate" is wonderful, innocent fun.
