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 »

Typical pirate movie with interesting details
9 October 2000 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

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.
