The Buccaneer
When Cecil B. DeMille was set to direct a re-make of his 1938 swashbuckler The Buccaneer and suddenly became ill, his son-in-law, Anthony Quinn, jumped into DeMille's jodhpurs.

Lafitte immediately falls in love with Annette Claiborne (Inger Stevens), the daughter of William Claiborne (E.G. Marshall), the first governor of Louisiana. ~ Paul… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This disappointing remake of DeMille's 1938 blockbuster was helmed by his son in law, actor Anthony Quinn, in his only directorial effort."
