Lt. Brian Fleming volunteers to be flogged for a contrived offense and then discharged from the British Navy. Now he can infiltrate the pirate stronghold of Diego Suarez using his whip-scarred back as proof of his disgrace. While gathering inside information about this stronghold's fortifications, he falls in love with Jessica Stephens who's also courted by the pirate captain, John Avery. At the same time he must fend off the advances of a love-struck Moghul princess who's recently been taken captive. Events reach a climax in a shipboard battle when Fleming's true motivations are revealed.Written by

A wonderful light hearted remake of Against All Flags.
Except for the pathetic flogging scene at the beginning of the film, this is a wonderful movie, & this die hard Errol Flynn will choose "The King's Pirate" over Flynn's "Against All Flags" every time. Even more surprising is that the superb Maureen O'Hara was Flynn's co-star, and therefore I can only guess that since her otherwise fantastic acting skills were also lagging in the film, I will chalk up the film's lousy performances to bad directing. Thank goodness for this remake; It's tied (with Overland Stage, & Barbary Coast) as my favorite acting performance of Doug McClure, who, if given the opportunity, could have been a blonde Tyrone Power; this film is the proof of that.
