Plot Summary

In 1674, "reformed" pirate Sir Henry Morgan is a high official in Jamaica, but Edward Maynard hopes to win a large reward by proving Morgan still dabbles in piracy. Maynard goes undercover as ship's surgeon with a Morgan henchman...who's been supplanted by notorious Blackbeard himself. Also on the ship is Edwina Mansfield, seemingly a damsel in distress, to whom there's much more than meets the eye. Written by Rod Crawford

Goofs Although Henry Morgan is depicted as Blaclbeard's chief antagonist, Morgan retired on 1683 and died in 1688, when Blackbeard (born circa 1680) was only eight years old. Blackbeard did not arrive in the Indies until the closing years of the 17th Century, well after Morgan's death. See more »

Crazy Credits Opening credits prologue: "The meeker the man, the more pirate he, Snug in his armchair, far from the sea, And reason commends his position: He has all of the fun and none of the woes, Masters the ladies and scuttles his foes, And cheats both the noose and perdition!"
