Trivia

Released in 1976, Swashbuckler (1976) was the first of back-to-back sea films for actor Robert Shaw whose next picture would be The Deep (1977) in 1977, these being two of the final films of Shaw. Moreover, Shaw starred in sea movies in three consecutive years, the first having been in Jaws (1975) in 1975. See more »

Goofs

When Nick and Ned are having their limerick competition, Nick uses the word 'Khaki'. This word is from the Hindustani language and only entered in the English language in the 1840s, through the British Army in India. Given 'Swashbuckler' is set in the 1700s, he could not have known the word. See more »

Quotes

Nick: This girl is trouble, Ned. A pirate in love is like a fish out of water. Both are where they shouldn't be. But only the fish has sense enough to know it.

One of My MOST Favorite Guilty Pleasures
17 March 2001 | by (Redondo Beach, California, USA) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this movie. I don't care how terrible critics might think it is. It's fun, romantic, entertaining, an old fashioned yarn. It came out right after Robert Shaw made a "splash" in Jaws, and he's fabulous as usual. Don't let them make you feel guilty about loving this movie. It's great.
