rather dated but still worth watching.
on 10 July 2006
an early example of an action / kids programme that ran for 39 programmes in 1957.
this stars a young robert shaw ( one of my favourite actors dating back years ) as a reformed pirate who helps the british government in capturing thiefs, looters etc.
rather dated now, with a lot of it studio-bound and made on a low budget. still, worth watching if you like sword fighting and ships squaring off against each other.
glad to see these programmes being released on dvd.
for those of you unaware, robert shaw starred in an updated version of the same idea made in the 70s. being hollywood, the budget had been much improved with real landscapes, beaches, ships and all the rest of it. the film was called "swashbuckler" and shaw was the only british actor in it. worth watching and far better.
