Marvellous semi-serious swashbuckler, with Lancaster and Cravat - his diminutive acrobat colleague - taking on a tyrant in the 18th century Mediterranean. Racily but elegantly directed by Siodmak, it effortlessly merges thrills and spoofery to produce entertainment that really is, for once, suitable for 'kids of all ages'. But the film's strongest point is the opportunity it offers to watch its stars' relaxed, energetic stunt-work: never has Burt looked so graceful.
