An Unusual role reversal adds spark to this colorful adventure
A Spanish nobleman (Serato) runs afoul of the cruel and bloodthirsty Saracen pirate Drakut (Barker)after being provoked into swordplay. The Spaniard is allowed to become a prisoner rather then being put to death, because he is an artist. As a captive he is one among many, the others being a bevy of beautiful young women who are to be sold as slaves at the pirate's stronghold. How the longsuffering captive frees the girls, wins the love of the pirate's dangerous mistress, and faces him in a final duel to the death makes an exciting adventure film. The unusual casting of Barker as the vicious, brutal pirate along with Serato as the valiant, noble hero is a switch in roles that adds a filip to what otherwise would have been a standard entry in the pirate genre.
