First Viewing, Signal-watch party
Maureen O'Hara plays a pirate captain and she is HOT. And by that I mean sexually aggressive.
This movie has some sword fights in it but not so many that I got bored. I feel the same about sword fights as I do about martial arts battles. Yawn. Until Maureen picks up the sword.
A lot of the costuming and sets are oddly terrible. The colors clash. The exceptions are the pirate's fancy gold-trimmed velvet coats and Maureen's groin-high decorated leather boots. This is where Halloween costumes got their ideas, much like flapper costumes are based on 1950's movies about The Roaring 20s.
