Storyline

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 Gary Dickerson <slug@mail.utexas.edu>

Trivia

David Farragut was born James Farragut, the son of a Spanish merchant captain and Revolutionary War veteran, but was adopted in 1808 by David Porter after the death of his mother and the death of Porter's father on the same day. Happy to have been adopted, the young Farragut changed his first name to David. He was captured at age 12 by the British during the War of 1812 and served during the actions against the Caribbean pirates in 1822. See more »

Goofs

Porter was stepfather to Farragut, not just another junior officer, and they did not serve on the same ship during the West Indian campaign. See more »

Quotes

Chief Petty Officer Link: [Speaking of Porter] As an instructor it was his job to chew midshipmen off, and just between us, you gave him plenty of cause.
Lt. David Farragut: When a man's religion is the book of Navy regulations, he gotta be sour inside, and your captain's a very sour man, Mr. Link.

a kind of oasis
22 February 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

history and romance. atmosphere of a lot of other adventure films from the period. and something different. maybe the humor or the different manner to use ingredients of original recipes. in fact, a film who has the charm of the heroic stories and something more. maybe the acting or the American implication in a different European problem. maybe the absence of Errol Flynn and the inspired measure in definition of character by Jeff Chandler. or the performance of Joseph Calleia who explores the each side of his character. a film of great images and full of air from childhood books. an oasis for different viewers. and, sure, a certainly delight.
