A hugely enjoyable swashbuckler from the days when 'packaging' wasn't such a dirty word and Jack Warner was a master of the art. Flynn plays novelist Rafael Sabatini's privateer, royally encouraged into deeds of derring-do against the wicked Spanish, as an amalgam of Captain Blood (also Sabatini-based) and Robin Hood. Robson repeats her Good Queen Bess from Fire Over England. House action specialist Curtiz directs what is in total a remake of a 1924 Frank Lloyd silent. Practice, as they say, makes perfect.
