Storyline

In late 18th century, during the Napoleonic Wars, Great Britain and the French Republic are fighting for the control of the Mediterranean Sea. Both sides employ former pirates, corsairs and privateers who, after receiving official pardons and amnesties, are fighting alongside regular navies. On the French side, former pirate Peyrol is tasked with transporting a captured treasure chest in British gold coins from the Caribbean to the French port of Toulon. The gold is sorely needed by the French Navy in its struggle against the mighty British Navy that is blockading most French ports and thus chocking the young French Republic. Peyrol and his crew of former privateers are entrusted with the gold and with a captured British ship for the transport to Toulon. Peyrol is also given a small package of secret documents and dispatches bound in oilskin to be delivered personally to the French Admiral in charge of the port of Toulon. Skilfully evading the British warships blockading Toulon, ... Written by nufs68

A wonderful adventure movie
10 October 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anthony Quinn and Rita Hayworth give us their usual excellent level of acting, and Rosanna Schiaffino as Arlette is wonderful. The script has some holes but that is more than made up by the wonderful performances of the actors and the beautiful locations. A sometimes underrated movie that is quite engrossing.

Anthony Quinn plays a pawn in a Napoleonic game of world chess. The high seas action is sometimes overshadowed by his relationships on shore and both make for captivating viewing.

I would recommend this movie.
