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

While 'Errol Flynn' was recovering from a broken ankle while filming Against All Flags (1952), Universal took advantage of the standing sets by putting together this modest epic during the hiatus. See more »
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 »
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:

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.
