Frank Borzage - The Spanish Main (1945)

A conventional pirate story that's given a colorful treatment under Frank Borzage's helmsmanship. The movie never gets beyond being a routine swashbuckler and romantic melodrama, but through Borzage's tongue-in-cheek treatment of the trite script (courtesy of Herman Mankiewicz and George Worthing Yates) it has some redeeming moments mainly thanks to Walter Slezak's well-played villainous Spanish aristocrat role.

It was RKO's first film in the three-color Technicolor process, and cinematographer George Barnes gives this seafaring yarn the lavish treatment by beautifully capturing the gorgeous locations, rich costumes and magnificent sets..
