Agreeing with the other reviews so far, especially with regard to lovely Jean Peters' memorable lead, I want to add that the Spanish Special Edition which includes the original English soundtrack is a great buy for lovers of old technicolor Hollywood movies (which we can continue to enjoy occasionally on afternoon TV weekend slots). Not only do we have the movie, still looking good, there is also included a CD of brilliant Franz (Sunset Boulevard) Waxman's typically fantastic score in full.
Note the full-bodied lushness occasionally leavened by the odd dissonance which, if anything, enhances its melodic romanticism combined with equally characteristic bloodcurdling moments and thunderous outbursts. After around a glorious hour (which recalls those 1930's Errol Flynn type adventure movies) there are a couple of surprise additions which together last nearly ten minutes. The first is a title theme vocal that is just plain 1950's soppy and wisely it was not included, which may otherwise have undermined the more rugged aspects of this seafaring yarn, but serves as an example of its type. The last orchestral piece may have been recorded later, probably included to highlight Waxman's pronounced classical music sympathies. It is immediately recognisable as a pastiche based on Smetana's Má Vlast symphonic tone poems!
