Description by

Ground breaking German director Fritz Lang (Metropolis,M) directs Stewart Granger (The Prisoner of Zenda, Green Fire) in this swashbuckling adventure about an 18th century orphan who discovers that his charming guardian is the leader of a gang of buccaneers. With Oscar-winner George Sanders (All About Eve, The Picture of Dorian Gray,Village of the Damned), Joan Greenwood (Kind Hearts and Coronets), and Alan Napier (Cat People, TV's "Batman"). Acclaimed actor/producer John Houseman (The Paper Chase, Julius Caesar) produced this high seas thriller.

Product Description:

In Fritz Lang's cinemascope epic, set in 18th century England, a young boy named John Mohune is sent to the town of Moonfleet by his dying mother to find her ex-lover, Jeremy Fox, and bring him to her. John finds Fox, but also discovers that he is a villainous smuggler. Fox makes a serious effort to send John away, and through their bickering, the two form a bond. John gets swept up in Fox's illegal dealings, learning the legend of a lost diamond belonging to John's pirate ancestor, Redbeard Mohune. As Fox's smugglers scheme for a way to find the diamond, and the local township is frozen in a state of superstitious suspense, John explores the subterranean tombs of the town, searching for the diamond. Before too long, John and Fox become tangled in a web of danger and deceit, fleeing from the local military and watching their backs as they are pursued by greedy diamond hunters. Fritz Lang uses the lush and expansive language of cinemascope to evoke a dark world of swashbuckling buccaneers, underground tombs, skeletons bearing secrets, and a heart-wrenching test of loyalty between rakish Fox and innocent John.

Plot Synopsis:

A tale about the experiences of a pirate who, among other things, tries to dupe a young man into giving away an expensive diamond.


Production Notes:

  • The only film Fritz Lang ever shot in CinemaScope, a widescreen process which Lang was once quoted as saying is only good for photographing snakes and funeral processions.
