Seeking to escape the stifling London court society, the beautiful headstrong Lady Dona St. Columb flees to her family estate on the Cornish coast. Her new freedom swiftly brings her into contact with the dashingly handsome French privateer Jean Aubrey who sweeps her off her feet and into a world of adventure on the high seas very different from her dull and boring life at court with her husband Sir Harry. Together with Jean Aubrey and her enigmatic servant William, Lady Dona conceives a daring plan to steal a ship right from under the noses of the English authorities. The theft enrages the authorities who make every effort to trap the French Pirate. However, as the noose begins to tighten around the lovers, Lady Dona is faced with the dilemma of duty and children with Sir Harry or freedom and excitement with Jean Aubrey.Written by

I own the book. Reading it after seeing this movie is going to make it that much more enjoyable. Ms. Fitzgerald was captivating, and Mr. Delon is the pirate any woman would love. This was the first time I'd seen any of these actors. I also thought Tim Dutton and Danny Webb II were great. Many times what you find in European actors is the best kind of acting, subtle changes in expression, something Americans could work on. This movie stands out as one of my all time favorites. I recommend this to anyone who loves romance/adventure!
