Full movie description "Captain Kidd":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.
Reviews of the Captain KiddSeeing Charles Laughton in a nautical-themed movie, I was hoping for something akin to his brilliant turn in "Mutiny On The Bounty" made 10 years earlier. Unfortunately, aside from another good performance from Laughton, this bears little resemblance to that earlier masterpiece. There's not really much "nautical" adventure in this. Even when the movie is set on the high seas, we rarely see the sea, the story being confined to the inner parts of the ship. Laughton's Kidd is not an historical treatment of the legendary pirate, but rather a mythical yarn about Kidd's attempt to reclaim a treasure stashed away near Madagascar, and his attempts to gain even more treasure by selling himself to King William III as a protector and escort of one of His Majesty's ships en route from India to England laden with riches.
The performances here were all right - headed of course by Laughton - but the story honestly didn't really capture me. Compared to Laughton's earlier "Bounty" this seemed much older in terms of production values and quality, in spite of it being made 10 years later. Overall, it's something of a disappointment.
