Synopsis / Plot
A raging storm shipwrecks a Dutch crew on an island, where a Spanish dictator forces some of them into slavery. Others (including the captain) flee, and out of spite attack a Spanish ship, which carries the dictator's lovely fiancee! The vengeful captain decides to marry the girl himself -- to the dismay of his men, who fear such a move will spark an uprising by the Spaniards. But when the Dutch sailors attempt to prevent the marriage by returning the lass to the dictator, she doesn't go willingly.
1945: Nominated for Oscar: Best Cinematography (Color)
