Critic Reviews for The Sea Hawk
Audience Reviews for The Sea Hawk
this was alot of fun since i'm a big fan of curtiz' 1940 version with errol flynn. the story is quite a bit different, more closely following the novel by rafael sabatini published in 1915. the star is a forgotten silent screen idol named milton sills, many of whose films have been lost. the only actor i recognized was wallace beery, playing a sea captain with many outlandish costumes, who becomes a devoted friend of the man he was paid to kidnap and sell into slavery. in this version, our hero becomes a moslem and famed barbary pirate known as sakr-el-bahr, the sea-hawk, after his mistreatment at the hands of the spaniards. the film is a lovely sepia tint, with some well done hand colored flames in several scenes. the sea battles are excellent and some were even spliced into curtiz' later captain blood. director frank lloyd is best remembered for the 1935 mutiny on the bounty but this is highly entertaining and was a huge hit in 1925
