Did You Know?
The penal colony where Jonathon Standing (Kerwin Mathews
) was sent to was also the Callow Hill Location. The scene of his escape and his attempted killing by two men was shot in one of the swamps at Burnham Beeches. Other scenes of the pirates wading through the swamp and walking in wooded areas was a combination of Burnham Beeches and Black Park. See more
When the pirates first arrive at the Huguenot fortified village they survey the area from the high hills surrounding the village(0:36:06). However, when two of the pirates and Jonathon Standing start walking down the path toward the village we notice the imposing hills surrounding the village have become mere cliffs just a few feet high from the ground (0:36:09). Also, the cliffs are located much closer to the fortified village than the imposing high hills from the previous shot. See more
If I kill, it is to achieve a purpose, not for the sake of killing.
