Crimson Pirate (1952) - Burt Lancaster DVD
Crimson Pirate (1952)
Region code 2 (Europe)
Burt Lancaster plays the title role in this caution-to-the-winds adventure comedy filled to the top-mast with devilish derring-do and hearty goofiness. Possessed of keen acrobatic agility from his pre-acting circus days, Lancaster embodies all The Crimson Pirate is about: escapist fare that's contagious fun.
Zestily directed by Robert Siodmak (the suspense master of The Spiral Staircase and The Killers in a robust change-of-pace), The Crimson Pirate also boasts the treasures of lovely Eva Bartok, lively Nick Cravat (Lancaster's boyhood chum and ex-circus partner), gorgeous location filming and a playfull William Alwyn score. It's nothing less than an edge-of-your-seat joyride. Heave-to, mates!
