    Joined with former circus sidekick and lifelong friend Nick Cravat, Burt Lancaster’s acrobatic past is in full swing in this rambunctious Technicolor spectacle at sea. Playing the lovable pirate with a loyal crew of bandits, the god-like Lancaster confidently, mischievously basks in the physical presence that made audiences so smitten. As Vallo, he easily overtakes the King’s ships, yet an island of oppressed rebels with more lofty goals and an intelligent beauty at the helm complicate his gold-driven navigation. During the hunt in Hollywood for any hint of a crimson-taint, the film’s merrily disguised political jabs fused with the defiant power of the newly independent producer/star – presenting a provocation to both the FBI and the Hollywood studio system. The handsome swashbuckler was successfully luring audiences while making new rules for outdated regimes.
