Burt Lancaster plays a pirate with a taste for intrigue and acrobatics who involves himself in the goings on of a revolution in the Caribbean in the late 1700s. A light hearted adventure involving prison breaks, an oddball Scientist, sailing ships, naval fights, and tons of swordplay. Written by

When Humble Bellows is lowered over the side to listen to Captain Vallo speaking to Consuelo about his releasing her and her father, Humble is hanging upside down. When we next see Humble up on deck, he is soaking wet. Why drop him in the water, when deck side is only a body length and a hand up away? See more »
This is probably one of the best films I have ever seen. It had a perfect mix of adventure and comedy due to the fact that it pokes fun at all the pirate cliches. Also, it really gave the legendary Burt Lancaster a chance to show of his acrobatic talents. Too bad they don't show this on television anymore. This film would probably appeal not only to older fans but to children as well.
