Captain Kidd (1945)

1h 20min. // In this unhistorical account, Capt. William Kidd is already a clever, ruthless pirate when, in 1699, he tricks the king into commissioning him as escort for a treasure ship from India. He enlists a crew of pardoned cutthroats… and Orange Povey, whom Kidd once abandoned on a reef and hoped never to see again. Of course, Kidd’s intentions are treacherous. But there’s more to gunner Adam Mercy than meets the eye.
