Handsomely mounted Yvonne De Carlo potboiler from Universal-International, which perfectly showcases a bygone era of bloodthirsty pirates and snooty aristocrats. Phillip Friend secures and flourishes in the dual roles of Captain Kingston and the cutthroat Baptiste. He has just the right amount of swagger and glint in his eye to pull it off. I like how Kingston supports the "Seaman's Fund" with his stolen booty. He is very much like a 19th century version of Robin Hood. But it's all quite unbelievable, really. Can he keep his identity a secret from the elites? Well, Miss De Carlo knows his true identity, and it's "Baptiste/Kingston's job to convince her of his own sincerity and goodwill. As for De Carlo's "Debbie McCoy," she sings three songs (and dances), gets into five scrapes, and exhibits a high degree of skill for escaping dire predicaments. She radiates a keen comedic flair for the broad material. While watching this movie, I developed a feeling that she reminded me of someone else. But I couldn't place the thought until she is caught napping in a shopkeeper's vegetable closet. She chews on a carrot, roles her eyes, and strolls confidently away from the prickly situation involving the storekeeper, his jealous wife, and a constable. And the actress she reminded me of: Lucille Ball. She's that talented here.

An agreeable swashbuckler about an avenger pirate who has another identity and his girlfriend at the turn of the 17th century . Enjoyable Pirate movie dealing with a famous pirate versus powerful nobles as well as authorities and finding romance along the way . Robin Hood-like pirate Frederic Baptiste (Philip Friend) slashing his way through the fleet and takes only the ships of wealthy but wicked trader Narbonne (Robert Douglas) who is helped by his assistant Patout (Norman Lloyd) . A New Orleans entertainer Debbie or Deborah McCoy (Yvonne De Carlo) , a passenger from his latest prize, stows away on the pirate ship and falls for the pirate ; later, having become a New Orleans entertainer, the fun loving lady meets his alter ego, who&#39;s engaged to the governor&#39;s niece (Andrea King) . After numerous adventures Deborah is able to aid her incarcerated lover Frederic Baptiste to escape .Universal-International&#39;s Fiery Swashbuckling Adventure!<br/><br/>Amusing pirate movie , plenty of action , land rescues , thrills , Sea battles , colorful cinematography , luxurious costumes and paced in lighthearted style. It is a blending of adventures , romance , musical , comedy and swashbuckler .Although the story has been told before , tight filmmaking and nice acting win out . The picture is fast-moving , exciting and thrilling right up to the final climatic confrontation. Average-budgeted film by Universal Pictures , using appropriate ship shots and miniature sets when possible . Universal took advantage of the unused sets by scripting and shooting a hastily assembled B picture, Yankee Buccaneer with Jeff Chandler .¨Buccaneer&#39;s girl¨belongs to Pirate or Swashbuckling sub-genre along with ¨Captain Blood¨, ¨The Sea Hawk¨ , ¨Long John Silver¨, ¨Anne of the Indians¨¨Adventures of Captain Fabian¨ , ¨The Crimson pirate¨ and ¨Against all flags¨ . It results to be one of Yvonne De Carlo&#39;s swashbuckling best though hasn&#39;t achieved the same classic status . Here appears the gorgeous Yvonne De Carlo as a hot-tempered pirate/entertainer moll who swoons over the British Philip Friend . Yvonne De Carlo was considered to be the Technicolor Queen , playing films of all kinds of genres , especially adventure , such as The Road to Morocco, Salome where she danced , Song of Scheherezade , Casbah , Sea devils , Captain Paradise , Passion , Band of Angels , Flame of the islands ,Death of a scoundrel , The sword and the cross ; at the ending of her life she played various terror movies as American Gothic , House of shadows , Mirror Mirror , Silent scream , Vultures , Satan&#39;s Cheerleaders . There stands out a great support cast made up with familiar faces such as Robert Douglas , Elsa Lanchester,Andrea King,Jay C. Flippen,Douglass Dumbrille,Henry Daniell , Peggy Castle and el incombustible Norman Lloyd .<br/><br/>This is a good-natured Technicolor romp with splendid cinematography by Russell Metty and evocative musical score by Walter Scharf . The motion picture was well directed by Frederick De Cordoba , a craftsman and action specialist who had already filmed other adventures . He shot decent films as Frankie and Johnny , I&#39;ll take Sweden , Here come the Nelsons , Bedtime for Bonzo , For the love of Mary . Rating : 5.5/10 , acceptable pirate movie , wonderful stuff . It will appeal to Yvonne De Carlo fans .

Buccaneer&#39;s Girl is directed by Frederick De Cordova and jointly written by Samuel Golding, Joseph Hoffman, Joe May and Harold Shumate. It stars Yvonne De Carlo, Philip Friend, Robert Douglas, Elsa Lanchester and Henry Daniell. Music is scored by Walter Scharf and Technicolor cinematography is by Russell Metty.<br/><br/>Avast yee lubbers on the Universal lot as the radiant De Carlo plays a spitfire gal finding her man amongst much jollification on the piratical high seas.<br/><br/>Budget is cut close to the cloth, editing is C grade and the ending is so quick in coming you have to rewind just to check you didn&#39;t press the skip function on the remote control by mistake! While it&#39;s true, also, to say that the song and dance numbers inserted into the mix are badly choreographed and borderline embarrassing. This is one of those films where the trailer gives no real indication of just how jolly and cheap it is, a film that if I had paid at the cinema to see back on its release I would have been most annoyed. But many years later, with a pristine DVD transfer to sample along with a bottle of ice cold Chardonay? It&#39;s a pretty fun way to spend an hour and twenty minutes. On proviso, that is, you happen to be a fan of Technicolor swashbucklers made in knockabout fashion.<br/><br/>Russell Metty&#39;s colour photography is gorgeous, so much so it deserves a better movie, while costuming (Yvonne Wood) is of a high standard, particularly for the ladies. The cast, a mixed set of performers for sure, make the light weight material work, with the likes of Lanchester, Daniell &amp; Douglas seriously knowing what is required. Friend cuts a handsome figure with his immaculate ruff&#39;s and pencil moustache, and in supporting slots Jay C. Flippen and Norman Lloyd leave favourable impressions. Scharf scores it with standard skull and crossbones flavours, which in turn sits easily with the frothy nature of the beast, and the fight sequences, resplendent with cheapo weapon props, are far from the worst in the genre.<br/><br/>With interesting twists and a good old sense of fun about it, there&#39;s enough here for the undemanding pirate fan to enjoy. Just don&#39;t expect the drama suggested by the trailer is all! 6/10
