The Black Swan- -
Tyrone Power and Maureen O’Hara cross romantic swords in this epic Oscar®-winning swashbuckler about a pirate determined to reform his thieving ways – after he steals one last heart! Recently reformed pirate Jamie Boy (Power) is supposed to be helping the new Governor of Jamaica, Captain Morgan, rid the Caribbean of black-hearted buccaneers. But when Jamie falls head over keel for the heavenly – but hotheaded – Lady Margaret (O’Hara), he gives caution the heave-ho, kidnaps Margaret and sets sail for the adventure of a lifetime! Packed with “action, excitement, thundering guns and a maiden in distress” (Variety), this “brawny, blood-curdling” (Look Magazine) high-seas saga that remains a rollicking, “timeless pleasure” (Los Angeles Times)!
