Galleon slaves strain against the oarswarships blast cannonades of deathand one of the great seafaring swashbucklers of the Silent Era (presented with added music) sails anew on DVD. Milton Sills, a stalwart silent-movie actor sure to be better known today if not for his untimely death, plays the gentleman pirate The Sea Hawk who escapes the treachery of a dastardly sea dog (Wallace Beery) and becomes the scourge of Spains navy. Two-time Academy Award winner* Frank Lloyd helms the excitement, hewing closer to the Sabatini novel than would the later Errol Flynn movie, using full-sized ships during filming and finding his sea legs years before guiding 1935s Oscar-winning Best Picture Mutiny on the Bounty. **Pleasebe aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
