The Black Swan (1942) is a swashbuckling, high seas, action packed, technicolor film directed by Henry King. The movie stars Tyrone Power as pirate Jamie Waring and Maureen O’Hara as the Lady Margaret Denby with Laird Cregar, Thomas Mitchell, George Sanders, and Anthony Quinn.

After England and Spain make peace, notorious pirate Henry Morgan (Laird Cregar) is persuaded to give up “pirating” and is made Governor of Jamaica, with orders to rid the Caribbean of his former comrades, by persuasion or force if necessary. Morgan convinces Captain Jamie Waring (Tyrone Power) and his lieutenant, Tom Blue (Thomas Mitchell), to also give up their old ways and join him, but others of the Pirate Brotherhood, such as Captain Billy Leech (George Sanders) and Wogan (Anthony Quinn), refuse to change. Captain Waring falls in love with The Lady Margaret Denby (Maureen O’Hara), who happens to be inconveniently engaged to an English gentleman, Roger Ingram (Edward Ashlei). As it turns out, her fiancé is a traitor and is secretly providing information about ship sailings to the unrepentant pirates. When Morgan is unable to stop the pirating ways of his old shipmates, he is suspected of still being allied with them. It is up to Waring to set sail to find out the truth and stop the renegade pirates led by Captain Leech and Wogan.
