Buccaneer's Girl

Synopsis: Robin Hood-like pirate Baptiste takes only the ships of rich but wicked trader Narbonne. Fun loving Debbie, a passenger from his latest prize, stows away on the pirate ship and falls for the pirate; later, having become a New Orleans entertainer, she meets his alter ego, who's engaged to the governor's daughter. Sea battles and land rescues follow in lighthearted style.

Is everything to your liking, ma'am?

It's an unusually cheerful

spectacle, Captain Martos.

When we're becalmed like this,

we might as well enjoy ourselves.

When I arrive in New Orleans I shall

enjoy myself, but not until then.

That pirate, Baptiste,

is an obsession with her.

Every strange sail we sight calls

for a fresh bottle of smelling salts.

Why, ma'am, you couldn't be safer

if you were in your own drawing room.

In a calm like this, no

pirate could ever get to us.

Not even Baptiste.

Fetch me that fiddler, Tom.

He's better than the one we got.

Aye, aye, sir.

Four bells and all's well!

Pirates! Pirates!


Mr. Roberts, you guard the ladies.

You men, arm yourselves and get on deck!

Well, thank you, son.

Thank you, son.

Don't let them forget

that China silk, Tom.


And did you fetch along the fiddler?

He went with the spice bales.

What do you intend

to do with us, pirate?

Set you adrift in the small

boats, along with the passengers.

Unless there's any amongst

you who would volunteer?

Think you any of my men

would serve with you?

Well, not a lad amongst us hasn't

served on a vessel of Alexander Narbonne.

Tell that to your master, if your small

boat's lucky enough to be picked up.

At the same time I'll request

the privilege of being present

when Narbonne has you

hanged from your own yardarm.

Why bother Narbonne?

I'll invite you myself.

Now, how many men would

rather transfer registry

than hit the small boats?

Small boats always make me crazy.

I'll take the skull and bones.

So will I.

Wise lads, Captain.

Here be one we missed.

Better drag him in.

Easy with them powder casks.

Aye, aye, sir!

Strip her rigging clean. Aye, aye, sir!

Seems like we're all through.

Scuttler, weigh below and

make sure she settles fast.

Here's something we found.

Well, a cabin boy, eh?

Well, son, would you like to

sign on with Frederic Baptiste?

Speak up, can't you...

Well, lower me jib a bustle.

Very nice to meet you.

Is this new gear on

all the Narbonne craft?

How did you get aboard?

It was easy.

But if I'd known you were

going to get your moldy old ship

captured by a gang of cutthroats,

I'd have stayed in Boston.

Stowaway, eh? Put her in the

boat with the other women.

Pulled away.

Then she'll have to go

in the longboat with them.

And get going before I change my mind

and make you swim back to New Orleans.

Come on, you... Wait a minute.

I've got two dresses in that boat

and I'm not leaving without them.

You know, he's making a big mistake

putting one woman in with all those men.

You wouldn't be thinking...

That she'd be safer with us?


Oh, no, you don't.

It's all for your safety...

No, you don't.

Let me down, you big ape!

You near scratched my ear off. Good.

You just don't know

how to handle a lady.

See what I mean?

If you don't put me down...

Imagine all those poor defenseless

men alone in a small boat

with a dangerous female like this?

Here, take her.

When I get down in the

boat, hand her to me.

You just don't know

how to handle a lady.

Ouch! Quiet.

Help me, Kryl. Help

me. Keep her quiet now.

You near bit me ear off!


Take her, Kryl! Take her!

You little devil, you...

You think my hand's a

blooming sea biscuit?

Touch me again and

I'll bite your arm off.

We gotta get her below decks

before the other boats get back.

You and your wonderful idea. We

should've dumped her overboard.

Ow! Ow!

Quiet! Whatever you have up

there, bring it down here.


What goes on out there?

Let me down. Let me down.

By the Dog Star! A female.
