The heart-pounding tone of Michael Curtiz's classic swashbuckling adventure THE SEA HAWK is established moments after the opening credits, when 16th century British pirate captain Geoffrey Thorpe (Errol Flynn) leads a thrilling raid on the galleon of a Spanish ambassador.Thorpe's men have not only captured the ambassador, but also a royal Spanish lady on her way home. But no one plans on captain Thorpe falling for his hostage, Doña Maria (Brenda Marshall), as the love between a pirate and a Spanish lady changes the future of England and the world. As Thorpe learns the Spanish are planning to wage war against England, he rushes home to warn Queen Elizabeth I (Flora Robson), only to find that certain powerful members of the Queen's court, concerned with his pirating tactics (and pursuing their own selfish agendas) have ordered Thorpe be put on trial.THE SEA HAWK, based a novel by Raphael Sabatini, joyously punctuates the scenes involving complicated political intrigue with several cataclysmic sea battles that rank among the best ever committed to celluloid. The film, which garnered three Academy Award nominations, features a spirited performance from Flynn that ranks among his best. The magnificent score by master composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold, who also scored  other Flynn films such as Captain Blood, The Prince and the Pauper, The Adventures of Robin Hood , and The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, was nominated for Best Original Score.
