Old 1955 Classic Film
10 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this old film which was interesting to view the type of picture watched in 1955 and how cheap this picture was made. However, it had an interesting story and Paul Henreid, ( Edri Al-Gadrin ) played a great role as a Pirate Captain. Patricia Medina, (Princess Karjan) appears in the role as a princess of Misurate who losses her kingdom to a wicked King named John Miljan who wants to kill her and be in control of all her wealth. Princess Karjan at first wants to give herself up, but a faithful servant advises her to seek out a Pirate, Edril Al-Gadrin to secure her kingdom back and she is willing to pay him great riches. In the meantime there is plenty of swords clashing against steel blades and cannons blasting away at model ships in the background. There are all forms of torture and whippings and of course, romance between Henreid and Medina. This is a really a low budget film with too much fake scenery and a complete burn out.
