30 hand picked films. A new one every day
6.5/10, my review: https://wp.me/p1eXom-3bn
Cinematography by Leon Shamroy.
With solid performances, including Sanders happily playing against type, this pirate adventure is strongest in the 1st and 3rd acts but is unfortunately talky in the middle.
Classic Hollywood swashbuckler entertainment at its best, alongside 'The 3 Musketeers', 'Scaramouche' and the 'Prisonner of Zenda'. It is easy to understand why Tyrone Power was the matinee idol.
