Critic Reviews for Dancing Pirate

First dud for Technicolor. Romantic buffoonery with Charles Collins, a pretty Fred Astaire. Doesn't quite catch the gaily silly tone it attempts.

As sight and sound it is excellent, but unfortunately it developed plot trouble early in the picture and wandered off into a long complicated narrative.
