Captain Kidd1945

  • 3.8
In this deviation from the historical account, Capt. William Kidd (Charles Laughton) 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, including Orange Povey (John Carradine), a fellow 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 (Randolph Scott) than meets the eye. Nominated for Best Music at the 1945 Academy Awards®.

Sound too weak to listen to. Good movie otherwise. Watched very little.

Now that was a real classic.
