Format: VHS Tape
The most gorgeous movies ever made were in the 1940s and 1950s, and all were in Technicolor. One of the most popular male stars to appear in Technicolor was Tyrone Power, and this is another one of his great titles. It is a rip-roaring, exciting pirate adventure that is VASTLY superior to "Pirates of the Caribbean". Lovely Maureen O'Hara photographs beautiful in Technicolor, as does George Sanders (in a red beard!).
Fox needs to stop being so concerned about The Simpsons and The X-Files and start releasing all of Tyrone Power's movies on DVD, including this one. Tyrone Power was the handsomest actor in Hollywood, and his movies were some of the best ever made.

(...) Yes, it's a bit "sexist" by today's standards, but have you read a romance novel lately? There is some odd appeal many women have for "reforming" the bad seed through love. Yeah, it never happens in real life, but who says movies have to be real life? I don't understand the psychology behind it, but I do understand a good pirate movie with sword fights, danger at sea, and damsels in distress. A great example of the classic Hollywood genre and I can watch it over and over!

Tyrone Power and the stunning flame haired Maureen O'Hara make a fetching couple in the colorful and rollicking swashbuckling costumer The Black Swan.
Set in the Caribbean in the 1650's, the former pirate Henry Morgan, played by the blustering and unfortunate titan Laird Cregar has just been named governor of Jamaica. He commissions his right hand man captain Jamie Waring played by the dashing Power, and his mates to rid the area of pirates. Captain Billy Leech played by the ridiculously red wigged and bearded George Sanders refuses to follow Morgan's orders. Aided by Anthony Quinn, complete with eyepatch, they set out to plunder Maracaibo on the The Black Swan.
Power, smitten with O'Hara, who plays the former Jamaican governor's daughter, kidnaps her and sets out to sea after Sanders.
Director Henry King uses a familiar Hollywood formula of adventure, romance, and attractive stars to create a pretty fair representative of this genre.

"The Black Swan" along with one or twoother such films can easily be called the very best Pirate films ever produced during Hollywoods Golden age.
I'll ignore, as I hope all readers will, the amazingly sexist heading by a previous reviewer that this film needs to be reviewed by a woman (total hogwash!!)and say that this is a splendid story filled with romance on the high seas, great pirate duels, and exciting action adventure. The production really has it all and benefits greatly from its two exalted leads. Tyrone Power was at the peak of his career when he made "The Black Swan" in 1942 and in this production he is all suave swashbuckler with a touch of the cheeky quality the Power brought to so much of his work. He is admirably matched here by the beautiful and spirited Maureen O'Hara who won, with time the dubious title of "Queen of the Pirate flicks" .She more than matches Tyrone with spunk and daring in this production.
The always reliable George Sanders donning a scruffy red beard plays the villian of the piece with his usual sarcastic wit and skullduggery and he plays beautifully off Tyrone's more polished image of everyones idea of the perfect swashbuckler.
The overraul production of "The Black Swan" is aided firstly by the strong action dominated direction of Henry King who guided Tyrone on numerous occasions through some of his best work, and secondly by the beautiful technicolour photography. Rarely has there been a more gorgeous looking production than "The Black Swan". The obvious generous budget (probably one of the last with World War 2 fast approaching) is put to splendid use here in the rich scenes set in the Carribbean, the really wonderful ship models used and the on location photography employed.
