Opening card: "This is a story of New Orleans in 1860. The story of a violent love between a captain of the sea and a creole girl. New Orleans, at this time, was a city of fierce pride. Pride of blood, pride of name, and those endowed with both lived on St. Charles Street." See more »

Entertaining Film
10 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As stated in another review, bit of a slow mover this one. Not one of Flynn's best. Although Flynn is credited with writing this, it is believed the he didn't actually write any of this. In his biography "My Wicked, Wicked Ways", he stated that he did. But others from the time dispute that claim. Who knows, Flynn did author 2 books on his own, and would have preferred to be remembered as a good writer. But, all in all, this movie is good, not the best, but good and entertaining. Vincent Price does an excellent job, Anges Morehead, is as usual very dependable and shows why she is one of the better character actors in Hollywood. Errol Flynn, to me, appears half asleep though this movie. Strange, considering he boasted he wrote it. Not much of an adventure film.. But for Flynn fans, a good film, and should be seen..
