Against All Flags (Universal 1952, Errol Flynn, Maureen O’Hara)



Errol Flynn stars as a courageous British soldier trying to maneuver his way into a pirate fortress. When he ends up in front of a pirate tribunal, he catches the eye of stunning pirate queen O’Hara.

Although his swashbuckling days were on the wane, Errol Flynn agreed to make the pirate adventure Against all Flags with only a moderate up-front fee but a large percentage of the film’s gross.
