Storyline

Anthony Dexter---bare-chested most of the film with the smoldering nostrils from "Valentino"---as "Captain Kidd" is saved from hanging by an Earl who wants to get his hand on Kidd's treasure. The Earl thinks the best method is to put a woman confederate (Jeanine Duvall) aboard Kidd's ship as a slave girl to wrest or wrestle the information from him. They fight a lot as a prelude to falling in love, and then work together against the evil Earl's none-too-well laid plan. Alan Hale, Jr. (Simpson) is along as Kidd's trusted friend, while Sonia Sorrell (as Ann Bonney) displays a lot of what the best-undressed female pirate wasn't wearing on pirate ships of the time.

Studio bound Pirate adventure
1 August 2007 | by (the rock) – See all my reviews

Caught this movie one late night. I watched it just for fun. It stars Eva Gabor as a spoiled girl who has to pretend to be a slave, Anthony Dexter as Captain Kidd and Alan Hale Jr as the Captain's best friend. Gabor becomes a slave to Dexter and the two fight, with pampered Gabor made to do duties which are beneath her but expected for a slave girl. The two lock horns and a sort of Taming of the Shrew kind of treatment to the story occurs, with Gabor fighting the Captain's every demand, who tries to tame the spirited 'slave' girl. They talk, and talk and talk. And, of course, they fall in love.

The whole film is OK and sorta fun in a quaint "they don't make movies like this anymore" way but nothing about it really stands out aside from the fact that Dexter is often shirtless and showing off his physique. There's also a pretty good cat-fight between Gabor and Sonia Sorrell, a female pirate (who looked really cool and sorta out of place in such an studio film). What's painfully obvious about CAPTAIN KIDD are the studio bound sets, which really looked like they're in a studio (we see shadows of actors appearing against the background 'sky'). There are some scenes shot outside but most of this seafaring adventure is filmed indoors. In fact the movie reminds me of a TV movie. A typically forgotten/overlooked United Artist movie.
