Storyline

This movie is an adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operetta of the same name, with parts of other of their operettas stirred in. Frederick has fallen in love with sweet innocent Mabel. Yet his vocation is an impediment to their union. Perhaps the situation can be rectified by his old nurse, Ruth, who made a dreadful blunder years before. A highlight is the song/dance A Policeman's Lot is Not a Happy One.

REAL? NEVER!07 February 2011

The decision to film this with stage scenery rather than "realistic" backgrounds was brilliant. Too many great stage shows have been made into abysmal films by making them too realistic (Man of La Mancha, for example). These are not "real" pirates on a "real" pirate ship.
