Synopsis: When the Duke of Arnoldo learns that his father has been killed by pirates, he joins up with a rival pirate band to seek revenge. Douglas Fairbanks stars in this story of a bold buccaneer, one who enters the pirate world thinking only of violence, but soon finds himself smitten with a damsel he finds onboard. Also starring Billie Dove, Tempe Pigott, and Donald Crisp, this swashbuckling adventure was a major success upon its 1926 release, and one of Fairbanks’ best!
