Goofs

At the opening of the theatrical trailer (also in the DVD), before the inserts of two bar girls in a slap fight and a scene of bear wrestling, taken from Anne of the Indies, one sees the name of a ship going away from the camera: 'Sheba Queen'. The letters are inverted, as on a mirror. The ship close-up is not part of the film itself. See more »

Kid's stuff
22 January 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Pirates of Tortuga is chiefly of interest today as an example of how, even in the early sixties, the studio infrastructure could lend even cheap programmers lavish production values. True, most of the sea battles are stock footage from The Black Swan, but the standing backlot sets at Fox give this Sam Katzman quickie a fairly lavish look. Shame it never finds much interesting use to put them to, with the third-rate cast failing to provide any colour to offset the clichés, although it does offer a rare opportunity to hear the oft-dubbed John Richardson, the Clive Owen of his day, use his own voice in a supporting role. Once the bookies favourite to take over the role from Sean Connery, just be grateful that George Lazenby got to play James Bond instead!
