The Sea Hawk

The Sea Hawk

A FILM BY: Michael Curtiz
WRITTEN BY: Howard Koch (screen play), Seton I. Miller (screen play)
STARRING: Errol Flynn, Brenda Marshall, Claude Rains

High-seas privateers plunder across the screen in this fleet pirate saga with a timely interventionist message. Queen Elizabeth is counseled to appease Spain and ignore its growing Armada, but Captain Geoffrey Thorpe (Errol Flynn) knows better and recognizes a military threat when he sees one. Building upon the spectacle of their earlier CAPTAIN BLOOD, Curtiz and Flynn achieve the zenith of the seafaring genre.
