Captain Jones tells Lieutenant Dale that the other two ships in his squadron are privateers, and so are not required to obey his orders. His squadron actually consisted of the Bonnehomme Richard and three other vessels, not two. The Alliance under Captain Landais was a Continental frigate and as such was actually directly subject to Jones' orders; however, Captain Landais felt he should be in command of the squadron, and regularly ignored Jones' orders. The other two ships (not mentioned in the movie) were the frigate-armed merchant ship Pallas and the Vengeance a small brigantine (which took no part in the battle). These two ships were privateers, although both did a generally tolerable job of supporting Jones throughout the cruise. See more »
the other reviewer hit the nail right on the head, this movie is full of historical inaccuracies, the house of burgess is in Williamsburg, Virginie, and John Paul Jone's brother lived and is buried in historic downtown fredericksburg, a good two hour drive from Williamsburg. the Virginie love triangle is rather silly. despite the flaws, i've liked this movie ever since i was a little boy and saw it on TNT during one of the fourth of July marathons... maybe i like my heroes a little stiff, but i thought Robert stack did an alright job. although, it would be nice to see the movie remade with a little more historical accuracy, and maybe have Mel Gibson or Russel crowe or a Scottish actor play jpj... he'd sound a little more accurate, i can watch this movie over and over again.
