Movie Summary

James Goldstone
Released:
1976
Rating:
PG
Swashbuckler, based on the short story "The Scarlet Buccaneer" by Paul Wheeler, is the tale of pirates in 18th century Jamaica. Screen legend Robert Shaw plays Red Nel Lynch, the leader of a crusty crew of thieves. He is aided by right-hand-man, Nick Debrett (James Earl Jones), as they attempt to help local beauty Jane Barnet (Genevieve Bujold) recover her family's stolen property and free her father from imprisonment. Behind this treachery is local tyrant, Lord Durant, (Peter Boyle) and his naive servant, Major Folly (Beau Bridges). Durant takes on Shaw and his motley gang of pirates. This fun, romantic, and old-fashioned yarn features equal amounts of flying fists, clashing blades, and bawdy humor. Shot on an actual ship modeled on Sir Francis Drake's galleon Golden Hinde, this fast-paced film is for any fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series and old-fashioned tales of heroism, romance, and humor.
