Burt Lancaster stars in this warm-hearted swashbuckling adventure as the Crimson Pirate. After years of robbing and plundering his way across the Caribbean, Vallo--known as the Crimson Pirate--is changed by the love of a woman, and he heroically comes to the aid of a small island nation.

Carnival-like 1950s pirate yarn is fun for all.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is as much a slapstick comedy as an action-adventure picture. Don't expect even something as serious-minded as the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean series. It's a quite lighthearted, innocent Technicolor romp of the old school. Violence is mostly slapstick, but it's still a movie with pirates in it, so you'll find stabbings and explosions, cannon fire, a flame thrower, and the heroine's elderly father is whipped and tortured (mostly off-screen). Two characters toss around TNT as a joke.
