The young physician Peter Blood, wrongly convicted of treason during the reign of King James II, is exiled from England and sold into slavery in Jamaica. He escapes and becomes a pirate. Later, he returns to England, joining the Royal Navy in its efforts against France.
The movie Captain Blood, filmed in 1935, was Errol Flynn's first swashbuckler, his first pairing with Olivia de Havilland and Basil Rathbone, and the film that made him a star.
