Midshipman Easy is a 1935 British adventure film directed by Carol Reed and starring Hughie Green, Margaret Lockwood and Harry Tate. A young man runs away from home, joins the navy and goes to sea in the 1790s. He rescues a captive woman from a Spanish ship and battles pirates and smugglers.[1] It was based on the novel Mr Midshipman Easy (1836) by Frederick Marryat.


The film was made at Ealing Studios by Basil Dean's Associated Talking Pictures. The film was a moderate success on its initial release in Britain. It was first released in the United States in 1951 by Astor Pictures.

A small part of the film was shot at the Isle of Portland.[2]
