A splendidly overripe swashbuckler, with Power as an adventurer who lends a sword to his old comrade Henry Morgan (Cregar) when he is appointed governor of Jamaica, seconding his bid to rid the Caribbean of buccaneers, in the process wooing and winning O'Hara's feisty damsel in distress, daughter of the former governor (Zucco). Sanders is the villain of the piece, one Captain Leech, an unreformed pirate with a brazen red hairpiece and the beard to go with it. Excitingly staged, boldly photographed in Technicolor, and boasting a flamboyant cast, this is a classic of its type.
