"...The last great swashbuckler from Old Hollywood..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Burt Lancaster plays the title role in this caution-to-the-winds adventure comedy filled to the top-mast with devilish derring-do and hearty goofiness. Possessed of keen acrobatic agility from his pre-acting circus days, Lancaster embodies all The Crimson Pirate is about: escapist fare that's contagious fun. Zestily directed by Robert Siodmak (the suspense master of The Spiral Staircase and The Killers in a robust change-of-pace), The Crimson Pirate also boasts the treasures of lovely Eva Bartok, lively Nick Cravat (Lancaster's boyhood chum and ex-circus partner), gorgeous location filming and a playful William Alwyn score. It's nothing less than an edge-of-your-seat joyride.

Product Description:

A tongue-in-cheek adventure spoof, set in the late 18th century, of swashbuckling pirates. Burt Lancaster is the captain who takes over royal ships on the high seas by having his crew feign death by scurvy.
