About the Movie

"Aye, me Buckos!" Errol Flynn ("The Adventures of Robin Hood," "The Dawn Patrol") made his swashbuckling debut as a dashing young Irish physician who is exiled into slavery by a tyrannical governor. Forced into piracy, he ultimately earns his freedom and the love of a proper lady, played by Oscar-winner Olivia de Havilland ("Gone With the Wind," "To Each His Own"). Co-stars Oscar-nominee Basil Rathbone ("The Adventures of Robin Hood," "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes") as a cutthroat French pirate. The action-packed film that launched both Flynn's and de Havilland's incredible careers. A huge commercial success, it was nominated for Best Picture. Directed by Academy Award-winner Michael Curtiz ("Casablanca," "Yankee Doodle Dandy").
