    Angela Lansbury as a femme fatale again, this time in a pirate-style noir, urging her soon-to-be-ex-but-he-don't-know-it-squeeze (Patric Knowles) to bamboozle the U.S. Navy (1812 edition) out of 10 mil in gold. Is the honey that good? There are doldrums on this sea voyage, but on the whole it passes muster.

    Best film ever made about the War of 1812 (partly because it literally has almost no competition).

    Pretty Sad Film, an attemp to put the War of 1812 on the big screen with toy boats. Boaring and dull film was very dark in places. Angela Lansbury starred in this one, she could have only went up from here. 1/2 star.

    Where to begin with this bottom of the barrel adventure? Dmytryk was always an inconsistent director able to produce fine films like "The Caine Mutiny" and "Broken Lance" as well as high gloss trash such as "Walk on the Wild Side" and "Where Love Has Gone" and slug like this. Strictly paying the rent actors give lackluster performances. Angela looks great but why oh why is she wearing a 1950's evening dress on a warship in 1812? Painfully obvious that this was filmed on the cheap in a studio tank with low lighting to cover the sets shortcomings. A shame since there are not a lot a films about this time period so a wasted oppurtunity like this is doubly disappointing.

    5.5/10. Not one of Angela Lansbury's better films, but she does keep you interested. Colorful pirate movie, pretty ordinary and nothing special. the cast tries and does a good job.
