Morgan The Pirate Purchased as a slave in the Panama market by the Dona Inez, daughter of the Spanish Governor, Welshman Sir Henry Morgan soon finds himself in love with the young woman. Soon after however he commandeers the ship transporting him and other slaves and soon they are the scourge of Caribbean looting and attacking the mighty Spanish Empire. The pirates soon find themselves acting under the authority of the English and Morgan has only one goal: to attack and take control of Panama.
Having seen this flick at the Saturday matinée when I was an impressionable young lad, it’s hard to imagine anyone duplicating this role in a more convincing way than Reeves, but someday perhaps Hollywood will revisit the story of Morgan the Pirate, it’s certainly worthy of a remake, if they could find someone with half the presence of Reeves to play the role.
