Like a warm-up to An American in Paris (1951).

Movie Metropolis

...it does a lot better with its singing, dancing, and staging than it does with its acting, characterizations, and storytelling.

Dan Callahan
Slant Magazine

The Pirate takes place in some Caribbean of the mind, with lots of shadows and lace and high mantillas, and it's all about the promise of sex; the film keeps tapping into a nervous, adolescent sort of fear and desire.

EmanuelLevy.Com

Consciosuly campy, this musical was misunderstood at the time. While Cole Porter's songs lack his trademark wit, the sumpruous sets and exotic costumes compensate for the slender fable,the highlight of which is Judy's rendition of "Be a Clown."

All told it's an enjoyable work, albeit one of the director's minor films.
