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.

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.
