One more rare gem...
12 May 2013 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I have quite some luck to find rare stuff since a while now. This one, made by Lew Landers, is one little adventure yarn set in sixteenth century, a pirate tale, as he gave us with BARBARY PIRATE, TYRANT OF THE SEA, LAST OF THE BUCCANERS, etc...Always a real pleasure to get one of those so B movies. Even produced by the "infamous" Sam Katzman, I don't present anymore. All those features are built on the same frame , the same scheme. Love, intrigue, action, very tepid but not charmless although, at least for movie buffs like me.

Unfortunately, I watched it in black and white instead of colour. I guess it is because of the 16mm print it was from.

We can prefer Sidney Salkow's pirates films, but all this old and so rare stuff is and will always be interesting to catch, no matter everything else besides.

And Jon Hall without Maria Montez - buried in Montparnasse cemetery in Paris - is sure worth seeing.
