Yankee Buccaneer
Filmfest 2006

David Porter, commander of a U.S. frigate is sent to the Caribbean to quell the activities of pirates and privateers. Disguising his vessel as a pirate ship, Porter is able to drift into dangerous waters with little or no resistance. The trick, of course, is to complete his mission and return to safety. Complicating matters is Porter’s reckless, irresponsible second-in-command -- Lieutenant David Farragut. Count Del Prado, the Spanish governor of the West Indies is secretly orchestrating the pirate activities. YANKEE BUCCANEER was hastily filmed on sets originally constructed for AGAINST ALL FLAGS (1952) while the star of the latter film, Errol Flynn, was recuperating from an injury.
