Product Description

Captain Cuation (1940)


Richard Wallace


Kenneth Roberts (novel), Grover Jones (screen play)


Victor Mature, Louise Platt, Leo Carrillo
Set during the war of 1812, Hal Roach's Captain Caution is an unusual swashbuckler in that the "hero" is actually the heroine. Louise Platt plays Corunna, the daughter of Captain Dorman (Robert Barrat), skipper of the American vessel The Olive Branch. When Dorman is killed in battle, Corunna courageously assumes command of the ship, with the help of muscular first mate Dan Marvin (Victor Mature). While trying to bring a valuable cargo to America, the Olive Branch is captured a number of times by the British, but on each occasion Corunna and Marvin manage to wriggle free and carry on their mission. Making life tougher for Corunna is the presence of the lacivious Slade (Bruce Cabot), who'd like to claim both the girl and the ship as his own personal property. Based on a novel by Kenneth Roberts (Northwest Passage),

    Am a Kenneth Roberts fan have read all his books. This closely follows the book. Very hard to find these offerings. Thank God for Zeus in providing these products at a reasonable price. This keeps the movies alive.
