Classic swashbuckling adventure, starring Tyrone Power. Notorious pirate Henry Morgan (Laird Cregar) is made governor of Jamaica and sets about recruiting some of his old comrades to help him rid the Caribbean of buccaneers. But when one of them abducts the previous governor's beautiful daughter and joins a group of rebels, the scene is set for a swashbuckling showdown.

This is the story of the Spanish Main, when villainy wore a sash, and the only political creed in the world was, love, gold........and adventure!

The Black Swan finds Tyrone Power at his swashbuckling best, here as James "Boy" Waring, a pirate starting to find his conscience as he starts to find love, Power is devilishly handsome and swaggers about with knowingly comic abandon. Tho this Henry King directed picture reeks of being an illegitimate child to Errol Flynn's fabulous Captain Blood, it has such a great sense of fun and high production values, it really doesn't matter one jot. The colour cinematography from Leon Shamroy rightly won an Academy Award, whilst the nomination for Alfred Newman's booming score and the one for special effects team were very much deserved. The other thing to note is the fabulous costumes courtesy of Earl Luick, splendid attire, none more so than evidenced by Laird Cregar's joyous Henry Morgan. George Sanders and a ravishing Maureen O'Hara are in on the fun and really it's a film that to me is impossible not to enjoy, so avast yee lubbers and buckle up your swash. 7/10

This is truly vintage pirate stuff. Not as well known as Flyn's pirate movies but this has great script & caste that delivers a real golden age of hollwood experience...the digitised version is hard to tell from restored film & worth having in the collection

Good old fashioned swashbuckler in glorious Technicolor has Tyrone Power renouncing his pirate days to help enforce British sovereignty in the Caribbean. Literate script from Seton Miller and Ben Hecht is especially well served by the wonderful Laird Cregar as the flamboyant governor of Jamacia and George Sanders who seems to be having a high old time as the rebel pirate Captain Leech.Maureen O'Hara is both spirited and quite beautiful as the love interest.
