Routine land-locked pirate adventure
24 September 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Anthony Dexter stars as the pirate leader seeking buried treasure underneath the site of a village church presided over by Father Felipe (Lon Chaney Jr). Shot in color on location in Mexico (set in 1777 Salvador), this is an unexceptional land-locked outing with few redeeming features. Mainly interesting to see Chaney cast against type as a sympathetic priest, also Robert Clarke as a lovelorn villager who gets whipped for his troubles. Anthony Dexter began his career as "Valentino" (1951), but soon settled into lesser features such as "Fire Maidens of Outer Space" (1955), "The Story of Mankind" (1957), "12 to the Moon" (1959), and "The Phantom Planet" (1961). Dexter retired by 1967, and died in 2001 at the age of 88.
