'Devil Ship Pirates'

This week on Trailers from Hell, Brian Trenchard-Smith takes on "Devil Ship Pirates," a troubled 1964 action/adventure maritime adventure film.

Like its predecessor "The Pirates of Blood River," Hammer's second pirate saga overcomes its budget restraints by setting most of the action on dry land. As usual with the studio’s forays into historical material, the innate cruelty of those unforgiving eras is given its head, leading to more than a little blood being spilled on all the lovingly fabricated finery. Indispensable Hammer stalwart Jimmy Sangster ("Horror of Dracula") did the script and Hammer regulars Andrew Keir and Michael Ripper lend their typically steady support to Sir Christopher Lee, who gets to do some nifty buckling and swashing under Don Sharp’s efficient direction.

    How was it "troubled?" It's a darn good movie and was produced without any conspicuous problems.
