A Welsh pirate raids up and down the Caribbean, battling the Spanish, the English and other pirates.
Passed by the British Board of Film Censors with a "U" certificate on 23 June 1961. Simultaneously premiered in London at the Prince of Wales (ABC), Harrow Road and at the Broadway (ABC), Hammersmith on 26 December 1961, running at both cinemas for just a week. UK distributors M-G-M decided against a general release, although the film was booked by a fair number of ABC cinemas and independents. After vanishing in the mid-1960s, the film was revived at King's Cross Scala's The Other Cinema on 19 March 1983 as part of a Steve Reeves Festival. Curiously, never released to British video or DVD.
In the scene where the Governor of Panama pardons 5 of the 6 prisoners during the festival, watch how one of the prisoners gives no reaction upon hearing his name called until one of the other prisoners congratulates him. Apparently the actor had such a small part that he didn't even know his character's name.
This film was trimmed by several minutes for its dubbed release in the United State through Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
