'Captain Blood' is a classic swashbuckler-filled with swordplay and adventure. Peter Blood is a physician and an English gentleman, turned pirate out of a rankling sense of injustice.

Barely escaping the gallows after his arrest for treating wounded rebels who were fighting the oppressive King James, Blood is enslaved on a Barbados plantation. During a Spanish attack he escapes and becomes a buccaneer. No ship sailing the Spanish Main is safe from Blood and his companions!

The Robin Hood-like figure of Blood, a gentleman-rogue homeless but for the surging decks of a pirate ship, makes for a classic hero.
