Can a dance teacher from Boston dance his way out of a hangman's noose? With help from the mayor's beautiful daughter, he just might!

Charles Collins stars in Dancing Pirate as a dance teacher from Boston who is tricked into joining a band of pirates, leading him to be fitted for a noose in California. Compared to “Douglas Fairbanks in his most acrobatic days,” Collins catches a break when the mayor’s daughter (Steffi Duna) demands the hanging be postponed until he teaches her to waltz.

Dancing Pirate earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Dance Direction and was billed as “the first dancing musical in 100% new Technicolor.”
