Last of the Buccaneers (1950)


Lew Landers    


Robert E. Kent (original screenplay)  


Paul HenreidJack OakieKarin Booth, Mary Anderson, Edgar Barrier,  John Dehner
Generous amounts of stock footage from 1950's Fortunes of Captain Blood made its way into the Sam Katzman production Last of the Buccaneers. Paul Henreid plays famed buccaneer Jean Lafitte, who, after being chased out of Louisiana following the Battle of New Orleans, sets up shop on the island of Galveston. The American authorities leave Lafitte alone, so long as he confines his raids to Spanish vessels. But when one of Lafitte's lieutenants attacks an American ship, it's open season on the handsome pirate. Though Karin Booth is the nominal leading lady, second billing in The Last of the Buccaneers is bestowed upon Jack Oakie, who makes the most of the few comic opportunities he is given.
French pirate Jean Lafitte led a crew of privateers and smugglers around New Orleans, Louisiana. He also was involved in the slave trade. During the War of 1812, the British asked for his help in an attack on New Orleans but he revealed their plans to the Americans. During the Battle of New Orleans, in late 1814, Lafitte was in charge of U.S. artillery. After the war, Lafitte returned to piracy and established his headquarters at Galveston, Texas. When he scuttled an American merchant ship in 1820, his headquarters were raided and destroyed. He continued his pirate raids on the Spanish high seas until he disappeared in 1825.
