The Albatross travels from England to the New World in 1675, with a number of passengers, a couple of political prisoners along with a dozen other women convicts, these to be sold into slavery on arrival. The woman activist frees the dozen of low-cast women, and they take over the ship. After a storm, the captain takes back control of his ship. Since mutiny is punishable by death in the New World, the mutineers try to reroute the course, tossing Desny and Purdom in the brig. A practical male mutineer wants to throw the women overboard to save rations, but the women free Purdom and the captain to battle the mutineers. A British warship comes to the rescue, and the captain pardons Angeli and Purdom for having saved his life. Written by

The lashing with a cat-o'-nine-tails that Edmund Purdom
undergoes on board the slave ship marks the second time he's been whipped in the movies. He's also flogged while imprisoned in a dungeon in The Prodigal
(1955). This flogging ranks 66th in the book, "Lash! The Hundred Great Scenes of Men Being Whipped in the Movies." See more
