A United States Navy ship in the first half of the 19th century, under the command of Captain David Porter, is expecting to put ashore after a year on the seas; but the arrival of one of Porter's ex-students, the willful and independent Lieutenant David Farragut, brings a new mission: to disguise the ship and crew as a pirate ship and help the Navy locate the criminals who have been robbing America's merchant fleet. But as Farragut's disobedience threatens the safety of the crew, they stumble upon an international conspiracy. Written by

David Porter served his country in the undeclared war against France, the Barbary Coast War, the War of 1812. While serving in the West Indies in the action to stamp out piracy (1823-1825), the period covered in this film, he invaded a Spanish town in Puerto Rico to avenge the jailing of one of his officers. The U.S. government did not sanction the action, and he was court-martialed. As a consequence, he resigned his commission to accept the post of Commander of the Mexican Navy (1826-1829). See more »

Summary of: Yankee Buccaneer staring Jeff Chandler.
Yankee Buccaneer is a pretty good action at sea movie. I had just recently seen it on AMC. I thought that Jeff Chandler played a brilliant part in the movie. Has some action and some good acting. I think you will like this movie and should give it a chance. On a scale of 1-10 I give it an 8.
