In one such battle, he overtakes a Spanish ship and when he comes aboard he finds Dona Maria, a beautiful Spanish royal. He is overwhelmed by her beauty, but she will have nothing to do with him because of his pirating ways (which include taking her prized jewels). To show his noble side, he suprises her by returning the jewels, and she begins to fall for him. When the ship reaches England, Queen Elizabeth is outraged at the actions of Thorpe and demands that he quit pirating. Because he cannot do this, Thorpe is sent on a mission and in the process becomes a prisoner of the Spaniards. Meanwhile, Dona Maria pines for Thorpe and when he escapes he returns to England to uncover some deadly secrets. Exciting duels follow as Thorpe must expose the evil and win Dona Maria’s heart.
Plot: Dashing pirate Geoffrey Thorpe plunders Spanish ships for Queen Elizabeth I and falls in love with Dona Maria, a beautiful Spanish royal he captures.

the blueprint for swashbuckling adventure
This textbook example of Hollywood derring-do from the Warner Bros. vaults features Errol Flynn at his most dashing and heroic, squaring off against the Spanish armada and winning the hand of beautiful noblewoman Brenda Marshall. It might appear stale by today’s high-tech action/adventure standards, but with a generous stock of swordplay, sea battles, romance, and heroism it’s a formula that never fails to please, and one which movie makers have been trying to duplicate (with only mixed success) ever since.
Familiar faces in the attractive cast include Claude Rains, Donald Crisp, the ubiquitous Alan Hale, Gilbert Roland, and Flora Robson, portraying Queen Elizabeth I only one year after the definitive Bette Davis performance in ‘The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex’.
The boys do know how to swash their buckle!
The boys do know how to swash their buckle! By “the boys,” I mean the team that made “Captain Blood” in 1935 and “The Adventures Of Robin Hood” three years later, in 1938.
Two years after Robin Hood, in 1940, the boys then made this wonderful, fun classic. “The Sea Hawk” is nothing short of wonderful four-star entertainment.
Of course, this team, aka “the boys,” was comprised of the greatest swashbuckling star of them all, Errol Flynn (better even than Doug Fairbanks Sr.): the greatest director of swashbucklers in th history of cinema, Michael Curtiz; the finest composer of unforgettable anthemic soundtracks, Erich Wolfgang Korngold; and the happiest, jolliest, laughingest sidekick of them all, Alan Hale, Sr.
The lovely Olivia De Havilland would also naturally be included here except that for whatever reason, she was replaced by Brenda Marshall in “The Sea Hawk.” Bummer! Marshall is a talented and pretty actress – but she can’t tough De Havilland, especially when teamed with ol’ “In Like” Flynn.
Flynn and his “legal” pirates are put through their paces in this one, even braving fever in the jungles of Panama as they fight a traitor and the King of Spain (the rat) – oh, and that all-time great rat, good old Claude Rains.
ARRRRGGGGGHHHH!!! Swash me buckle, me hearties, Errol Flynn’s on watch!
