Splice the main-brace and set sail with one of Hollywood's greatest pirate yarns. Robert Newton ( Treasure Island) has the role of a lifetime as Blackbeard, holy terror of the high seas. It's set at a time of buccaneers and privateers; plucky Robert Maynard (Keith Andes) infiltrates the ship of notorious pirate Charles Bellamy, searching for vital evidence that will convict crooked official Henry Morgan. But Bellamy has been deposed; Blackbeard is captain now and he doesn't trust Maynard. There's treasure to plunder and a fair maiden to rescue but Blackbeard is a dangerous man and will not easily be defeated...
