Captain Kidd (1945) Adventure, Biography, Drama (DVD)
Directed by: Rowland V. Lee.
Starring: Charles Laughton, Randolph Scott, Barbara Britton.
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.
