Puerta Vallarta in Jalisco, Mexico doubled for 1718 Jamaica where the film is set. Jamaican locations were no longer authentic to the original setting of the period. See more »
When Nick and Ned are having their limerick competition, Nick uses the word 'Khaki'. This word is from the Hindustani language and only entered in the English language in the 1840s, through the British Army in India. Given 'Swashbuckler' is set in the 1700s, he could not have known the word. See more »
Despite Maltin's great slagging-off of this movie (has he actually seen it, I wonder??), I reckon it was a little gem in an era when a lot of filmmakers took themselves and their work far too seriously! Guaranteed to lift the blues on any bad day, it may be a bit corny, it might have been misguided to make a pirate flick in the mid-70s, but there are certainly a lot worse examples of the genre around, and this one is quite a cute and appealing film.
