At the start of the movie is a shot of Trafalgar Square with Admiralty Arch in the foreground and Nelson's Column in the middle. The movie is about pirates during the reign of Charles II (1660-1685). Trafalgar Square was named after the famous sea-battle in 1805 in which he died. The Arch was erected by order of king Edward VII and completed in 1912. Part of the text on it is visible:

It has been a long time since I've seen this film, over 20 yrs in fact, but there were bits of detail that made it stick in my mind this long. For instance, the character named PeeWee had a distinctive style of sword fighting: he had the rapier or saber in the right hand but he wore a black glove on his left. After some research, I found the glove was used to bat away the blade and acted as a main gouche. Those types of details kept me watching the screen and firmly seated it in my memory. It was a typical pirate movie with the usual stereotypical roles, but it was fun to watch and little bits of the unusual peeked out here and there. I wish I had a chance to watch it again.
