Sea captain Bart Paxton has a thankless task from the King of England.Henry Morgan, erstwhile ally of the crown, has set up a kingdom onTortuga, whose buccaneers are robbing English ships at will andstrangling the island of Jamaica. The Royal Navy can&#39;t attack Tortugawithout igniting a new war with Spain, so the King is sending Paxton asa secret privateer to put an end to Morgan&#39;s depredations. And Meg, theyoung hellion who has stowed away on Paxton&#39;s ship, isn&#39;t making hisjob any easier.<br><br>Unlike its predecessor The Black Swan or its contemporary Morgan thePirate, Pirates of Tortuga casts Henry Morgan as a villain, the correctand natural role for that treacherous, rapacious, and brilliant man.The one difficulty is that the historical Captain Morgan died rich,contented, and even respectable, a most unsatisfying end for a movievillain. The movie deals with this problem straightforwardly, byconstructing a sort of alternate history that shows what might havehappened if Morgan had not chosen to answer King Charles&#39;s summons toEngland after his raid on Panama in 1671, with its very real attendantrisk of imprisonment and execution, but instead had followed the coursemany of his fellow buccaneers did by raiding and lootingindiscriminately. It would have been well within Morgan&#39;s power to setup the &quot;buccaneer kingdom&quot; on Tortuga that the movie shows.<br><br>The plot is bare-bones, but serviceable: Paxton finds Morgan, Paxtonposes as partner of Morgan to spy out Morgan&#39;s fortress, Meg flirtswith the governor of Jamaica, but ultimately decides her heart trulylies with Paxton, Paxton defeats Morgan. But the denouement is a majordisappointment: unimaginative, perfunctory, and implausible at once,and moreover, it fails to tie up Morgan&#39;s end of the story.<br><br>Bart Paxton&#39;s part is well-written, a potentially dashing commanderwith real brains and imagination, but Ken Scott is unable to bringanything to the role but heroic blandness. Letitia Roman is certainlyfetching as Meg, especially in her sailor&#39;s togs, and her bare-leggedwriggling in Paxton&#39;s bed is a clear sign of the sexual revolution&#39;stsunami roaring toward the beach of the Hayes Code. But looking beyondher physical charms, Meg&#39;s personality really has nothing to recommendher: she&#39;s not smart, brave, loyal, honest, or even charming.<br><br>Robert Stephens&#39; Henry Morgan is interesting, but ultimatelyineffective. Stephens plays Morgan as a full-blown alcoholic, completewith the shakes. His Morgan is greedy (his eyes almost bug out whenPaxton presents him with a chest full of guineas) and cruel, butcredulous and unintelligent. He is fun to hate, as a good villainshould be, but he lacks the frisson of menace that emanated fromRathbone&#39;s Levasseur or Newton&#39;s and Heston&#39;s Long John Silver.<br><br>The supporting cast comes to the rescue, particularly Dave King asPeeWee and Stanley Adams as Montbars. King is appealing, dashing, andsometimes very funny, while Adams&#39; Montbars is pure, unbridledappetite, fat and greedy and bullying, a perfect pirate.<br><br>Visually, the movie is outstanding. The shots of the sailing ships aresublime, the colors are sumptuous, and the islands and cliffs aremagnificent. The movie is fun to watch, and while it won&#39;t stay withyou long, it avoids the gratuitous absurdity of many pirate movies.<br><br>Rating: ** &frac12; out of ****.<br><br>Recommendation: Worth a rental after it leaves the new release shelves.

This is a fairly ordinary boys&#39; pirate adventure memorable only for theover the top performance from Leticia Roman as the reluctant stowawayaboard Ken Scott&#39;s galleon embarked for the Caribbean and a battle ofwits with Captain Henry Morgan (Robert Stephens) who has returned tohis buccaneering ways after briefly working for the King of England.<br><br>Roman acts as if she&#39;s just downed a pint of strong black coffee, andno doubt most self-respecting sailors would have thrown her overboardafter having had their way with her. Somehow, though, not only does shemake it intact all the way to Jamaica but she also manages to getScott&#39;s insipid Captain Bart to fall in love with her.<br><br>Robert Stephens as a slightly unhinged Morgan given to smacking therump of his ever so slightly raddled lady companion is the highlight ofthe film, although he doesn&#39;t receive the amount of screen time hedeserves. Curious to see British comedian Dave King appearing as one ofScott&#39;s swashbuckling sidekicks too. Other than that there really isn&#39;ta lot to say about this flick.

Oh my. 20th Century Fox must have burned with shame and embarrassmentat this wretched turkey being released under their aegis. I enjoyalmost all old movies, and up until viewing Pirates of Tortuga hadnever seen a film that was ALL bad, without any redeeming qualities orentertainment value at all ... but this is the one. Pirates is so veryinept in every respect that it can&#x27;t even be enjoyed as one of those&#x22;so bad it&#x27;s good&#x22; pictures. The direction is almost non-existent, withscenes that drag on as is a first rehearsal had been filmed, and filmedbefore it had even been blocked. This plodding footage is interspersedwith stock shots and, in cases, entire scenes lifted from earlier (andMUCH better) movies, and the inserts are glaringly obvious,particularly in the first battle at sea (thirty or so background extraslistlessly waving swords at each other as if half asleep, never varyingtheir position, suddenly interrupted by a genuinely action-packedinsert from The Black Swan!). The cast is headed by lacklustre KenScott, who had lent his wooden presence to other Fox productions (hissupporting role in Stopover Tokyo helping to sink that particular dud).John Richardson looks fabulous, but has no technique, looks somewhatlost, and after this film went back to virtual extra status until hisbreakthrough a few years later in She and One Million Years BC. Worstof all, in fact the worst performance I have ever seen by a leadinglady in a studio production, comes from Leticia Roman, a pretty butspectacularly untalented Italian girl playing a cockney and spoutinglines like &#x22;lord love a duck&#x22; and &#x22;you ain&#x27;t ever treated me like alay-dee&#x22; in a voice that&#x27;s a cross between Monica Vitti and Dick VanDyke in Mary Poppins. I am in danger here of making Pirates of Tortugasound like something worth sitting through in order to have a giggle,but believe me it is NOT!
