Captain Pirate is a 1952 American action/adventure film directed by Ralph Murphy, starring Louis Hayward and Patricia Medina, and produced by Harry Joe Brown. The swashbuckler was based on the Rafael Sabatini novel Captain Blood Returns.


Captain Blood is pardoned by the Crown for his crimes against Spain on the Spanish Main. By 1690 he is living in the West Indies on his plantation where he practices medicine and is to be married to Isabella. His new life is put in danger when he is arrested on a piracy charge after somebody raids the island making him look guilty. To prove otherwise he has to sail again.[1]
