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 »
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 »

Surprisingly Fun! Not Citizen Kane, but def worth a look!
I really like this movie. It's a movie confection. It's not to be taken too seriously. It has a lot of well known actors (when they were young!) , beautiful scenery, good guys, bad guys and tons of action. There is one stunt where they ride a stagecoach off a cliff into the ocean that is outstanding even by today's standards.
I originally saw this movie in the theatre when I was about 13 years old. I recently rewatched it a few times just to see if my opinion would change. It didn't. This is a good one.
Plus, seeing a young Peter Boyle and a young, trim James Earl Jones is funny! You can't help but chuckle.
I give this one 7.5/8 stars out of 10.
