Critic Reviews for Anne of the Indies
Audience Reviews for Anne of the Indies
swashbuckling fun altho it could've used more of the true story of the notorious anne bonny. jean peters gives a gutsy performance as the pirate queen and protege of blackbeard. interesting plot twists tho it eventually paints itself into a corner with an ending that doesn't make sense. this can be seen in the US free streaming on IMDb courtesy of hulu
Jean Peters proves she can swashbuckle with the best of them in this entertaining old school tale of piracy on the high seas. Jacques Tourneur paces it perfectly with just the right mix of drama and action, with a strong cast of colourful characters and well constructed plot. Louis Jourdan cuts quite a dash as the French privateer who melts her heart, Herbert Marshall puts in a memorable performance as the soused doctor who acts as her counsel, and the lovely Debra Paget makes a spirited beauty. Best of all it avoids cliches, and just when you think it's going to descend into sappy sentimentality, it turns around and surprises. One of the better swashbucklers out there (but don't read the synopsis as it gives the entire plot away. Doh.)
