Pirates' Treasure

Triple Pack!


In the late 18th Century, Captain Vallo (Burt Lancaster), his trusty mute partner Ojo (Nick Cravat) and his crew of nefarious pirates scour the Caribbean searching for ships to plunder. This light-hearted action romp has everything you would expect from a pirate film: scurvy men, and a pretty damsel in distress (Eve Bartok). Shot on location in the Meditteranean and directed by the veteran Robert Siodmak (The killers, The Spiral Staircase) this delightfully upbeat, cartoonish adventure story was the template for tone and style of the Pirates of the Caribbean. 


The Buccaneers is based on the true story of England’s attempts to destroy the Caribbean’s pirates’ stranglehold on shipping routes in the New World. Produced in England at the famed Nettlefold Studio sound stages in Walton-on-Thames. The Buccaneers features the famous British actor Robert Shaw (Janus, Man For All Seasons) as Captain Dan Tempest, a pardoned ex-pirate, and Peter Hammond (The Avengers) as Lt. Beamish, the Crown appointed deputy governor of New Providence in the Bahamas.


In this fully restored widescreen edition, faithfully restored to full Cinemascope glory, Long John Silver turns up on a British Caribbean island, after his Treasure Island adventure, and hears that rival pirate Mendoza has taken the ship carrying the governor's daughter...and his young friend Jim Hawkins. Naturally, there's more to his rescue plan than meets the eye; he hopes to get a new ship and go back to Treasure Island for more treasure...
