This is a good pirate/privateer film.
Charles Laughton was marvelous as Captain William Kidd.
Randolf Scott was a real surprise in his stand out role as Adam Mercy.
This is more of a drama than an action film.
The sound and picture quality on the DVD was poor. It's a classic film. I only wish that it would be restored to it's former glory.
The acting was fine and the story,as told, engrossing, but the production was on the poor side. The lighting was terrible for a movie made in 1945.
Overall a decent movie to watch once, but it will be forgetable.
