Captain Blood

Synopsis: Arrested during the Monmouth Rebellion and falsely convicted of treason, Dr. Peter Blood is banished to the West Indies and sold into slavery. In Port Royal, Jamaica the Governor's daughter Arabella Bishop buys him for £10 to spite her uncle, Col. Bishop who owns a major plantation. Life is hard for the men and for Blood as well. By chance he treats the Governor's gout and is soon part of the medical service. He dreams of freedom and when the opportunity strikes, he and his friends rebel taking over a Spanish ship that has attacked the city. Soon, they are the most feared pirates on the seas, men without a country attacking all ships. When Arabella is prisoner, Blood decides to return her to Port Royal only to find that it is under the control of England's new enemy, France. All of them must decide if they are to fight for their new King.

Baron Jeffreys of Wem...

''and by a jury of 12 good men and true.''

James Haynsworth, hold up your hand.

-Guilty or not guilty?


-Harold Carron, guilty or not guilty?


-Andrew Baynes, guilty or not guilty?


-Jeremy Pitt, guilty or not guilty?


-John Wolverstone, guilty or not guilty?


Uriah Ogle, guilty or not guilty?

Guilty. Praise the Lord.

Henry Hagthorpe, guilty or not guilty?


-Lord Chester Dyke, guilty or not guilty?


Peter Blood, guilty or not guilty?

lt's entirely innocent, I am.

Take the stand and face His Lordship.

Are you guilty or not guilty?

You must use the right words.

Words, is it? Not guilty.

And speaking of words,

I'd like to say a few about the injustice...

of keeping an innocent man

locked up for three months...

in such filth and heat and ill-feeding

that my chief regret is I didn't try...

to pull down the filthy fellow

that sits on the throne.


Are you entirely ignorant

of the proper procedure of the court?

Most happily ignorant up to now.

I could gladly have done

without this acquaintance.

Enough of this.

There is nothing more to be said,

except the passing of sentence.

May it please Your Lordship,

but there's a deal more to be said!


-How now, fellow?

-There is the little matter of my defense.

Very well, then...

but in heaven's name, be brief, man.

We have much to do.

I am guilty of nothing, my lord...

unless it be adjudged a crime

that a man try to live peaceably.

Living peaceably

with the army of Monmouth?

I was not with Monmouth's army, my lord.

I was arrested while engaging

in my profession as physician.

What's this?

You tell us you're a doctor, you rogue?

And as such was summoned

to the aid of Lord Gildoy...
