Hoping to give his sea-weary crew a break, 19th-century U.S. Naval commander David Porter (Jeff Chandler) suddenly finds himself saddled with a headstrong new second officer─David Farragut (Scott Brady)─and a new mandate: Disguise his frigate as a pirate vessel and root out the real freebooters plundering American merchant ships. Effective marine saga co-stars Joseph Calleia, Suzan Ball, David Janssen, Michael Ansara. 86 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
