Notes from the Classic Film Gentleman:
Ex pirate Henry Morgan (Cregar) has taken the position of Governor of Jamaica from Lord Denby (George Zucco). This is due of finding the error of his ways and has agreed to eliminate people of power of the island and others of rank whom pose problem. Both the local people of Jamica and the pirates that plunder the local seas do not care for the new Governor.
The pirates Captain Billy Leech and Wogan are not to be stopped. They are massing a great fortune thanks to working alongside Roger Ingram. That being said they of course are not stopping and continue to do there deeds on the seven seas. With these issues going on it looks that perhaps the new Governor is questionable to the homeland. This is where Capatin Jamie comes in and has to help the new Governor prove that he is innocent of pirating and looting ships and clear his name. To do so Jamie decides to set sail and take matters in his own hands. With doing so he decides to take the beautiful Lady Margaret by kidnapping her and then they set sail for a long journey.
