Sea battles and land rescues follow in lighthearted style. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Conventional and standard Pirate movie from Universal Studios
19 February 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

An agreeable swashbuckler about an avenger pirate who has another identity and his girlfriend at the turn of the 17th century . Enjoyable Pirate movie dealing with a famous pirate versus powerful nobles as well as authorities and finding romance along the way . Robin Hood-like pirate Frederic Baptiste (Philip Friend) slashing his way through the fleet and takes only the ships of wealthy but wicked trader Narbonne (Robert Douglas) who is helped by his assistant Patout (Norman Lloyd) . A New Orleans entertainer Debbie or Deborah McCoy (Yvonne De Carlo) , a passenger from his latest prize, stows away on the pirate ship and falls for the pirate ; later, having become a New Orleans entertainer, the fun loving lady meets his alter ego, who's engaged to the governor's niece (Andrea King) . After numerous adventures Deborah is able to aid her incarcerated lover Frederic Baptiste to escape .Universal-International's Fiery Swashbuckling Adventure!

Amusing pirate movie , plenty of action , land rescues , thrills , Sea battles , colorful cinematography , luxurious costumes and paced in lighthearted style. It is a blending of adventures , romance , musical , comedy and swashbuckler . Although the story has been told before , tight filmmaking and nice acting win out . The picture is fast-moving , exciting and thrilling right up to the final climatic confrontation. Average-budgeted film by Universal Pictures , using appropriate ship shots and miniature sets when possible . Universal took advantage of the unused sets by scripting and shooting a hastily assembled B picture, Yankee Buccaneer with Jeff Chandler .¨Buccaneer's girl¨belongs to Pirate or Swashbuckling sub-genre along with ¨Captain Blood¨, ¨The Sea Hawk¨ , ¨Long John Silver¨, ¨Anne of the Indians¨¨Adventures of Captain Fabian¨ , ¨The Crimson pirate¨ and ¨Against all flags¨ . It results to be one of Yvonne De Carlo's swashbuckling best though hasn't achieved the same classic status . Here appears the gorgeous Yvonne De Carlo as a hot-tempered pirate/entertainer moll who swoons over the British Philip Friend . Yvonne De Carlo was considered to be the Technicolor Queen , playing films of all kinds of genres , especially adventure , such as The Road to Morocco, Salome where she danced , Song of Scheherezade , Casbah , Sea devils , Captain Paradise , Passion , Band of Angels , Flame of the islands ,Death of a scoundrel , The sword and the cross ; at the ending of her life she played various terror movies as American Gothic , House of shadows , Mirror Mirror , Silent scream , Vultures , Satan's Cheerleaders . There stands out a great support cast made up with familiar faces such as Robert Douglas , Elsa Lanchester,Andrea King,Jay C. Flippen,Douglass Dumbrille,Henry Daniell , Peggy Castle and el incombustible Norman Lloyd .

This is a good-natured Technicolor romp with splendid cinematography by Russell Metty and evocative musical score by Walter Scharf . The motion picture was well directed by Frederick De Cordoba , a craftsman and action specialist who had already filmed other adventures . He shot decent films as Frankie and Johnny , I'll take Sweden , Here come the Nelsons , Bedtime for Bonzo , For the love of Mary . Rating : 5.5/10 , acceptable pirate movie , wonderful stuff . It will appeal to Yvonne De Carlo fans .
