Pirate Peplum Fun
28 January 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Rollicking pirate adventure on the high seas with Richard Harrison on top physical and acting form. Unusually violent for the time it was made, it features a novel angle where the pirates are the good guys and the British navy the baddies.

David Robinson (Harrison) is on the warpath after crooked British naval Captain Redway (Roldano Lupi), his former commander and the man responsible for the downfall of his family. To achieve his goal he teams up with jolly pirate Van Artz (Walter Barnes).

Michele Mercier, making one of her three Italian peplum appearances here playing the role of Jennifer, Van Art's daughter and David's love interest, went on to become a major European star with the "Angelique" series a few years later.

You also have some of the most unconvincing blackface this side of Al Jolson courtesy of "mulata" Marisa Belli, not the most attractive of women in the first place, and boot-polished up she just looks strange.

Things briefly take a turn for the very odd towards the end when Jennifer is sold to some natives who have a man-eating plant to placate and David has to come to save her – this sequence is so bizarre, even filmed with different colour filters, that it looks like it belongs in another film altogether.

It's all good uninvolving Saturday matinée style fun.
