Description by OLDIES.com:
"Let's go a roving, a roving, a roving and join the Buccaneers!!!" A young and dashing Robert Shaw stars as Dan Tempest, a former pirate who will be pardoned by the King if he becomes a British privateer and joins in the fight against Spanish pirates threatening Britain's rule of the seas. Noted for playing James Bond's nemesis in From Russia With Love
(1963) and King Henry VIII in A Man For All Seasons
(1966), Shaw would return to the sea with a stellar performance as the grizzled shark-hunter in 1975's summer blockbuster Jaws
Mistress Higgins' Treasure: A prim schoolmistress comes to Captain Tempest with tales of a buried treasure.
Gunpowder Plot: A stubborn governor refuses to send much-needed gunpowder to the colony, so Tempest stages a fake pirate raid to seize it.
Surgeon of Sangre Rojo: During a typhoid epidemic, Tempest poses as an Indian to kidnap a physician from the Spanish Navy.
Whale Gold: The crew of the Sultana strikes it rich when they find a huge deposit of ambergris, but "whale gold fever" soon has the men at each other's throats.
