Description by OLDIES.com:

The skipper of an early slave trading vessel operating along the African coast attempts to get out of the business by getting rid of his crew and hiring a new one, only to find out that such a corrupt path is not so easily changed. Mutiny, swashbucklers, and a beautiful bride make this high seas adventure an unforgettable one. Mickey Rooney joins the cast as Swifty the cabin boy.

Product Description:

This period adventure drama was directed by Tay Garnett and adapted from a story by William Faulkner. The skipper of a slave trading vessel operating along the West African coast in 1860, Captain Jim Lovett (Warner Baxter) is troubled by his flesh-peddling trade. He's marrying the beautiful Nancy Marlowe (Elizabeth Allan) and wants to replace his morally-indefensible business with a more respectable foray into standard goods shipping. So he orders his first mate, Jack Thompson (Wallace Beery) to fire most of the crew and replace them with new hands. However, the ship's swabbies are accustomed to their lucrative line of work and, under the sway of the greedy Lefty (George Sanders), they mutiny, resulting in high seas histrionics and swashbuckling sword fights, with comedy relief provided by Mickey Rooney as Swifty the cabin boy. Lon Chaney, Jr. appears unbilled in the film's opening, where his character is crushed during a ship's launching.
