Movie Description:
Captain Phillip Kent, a soldier of fortune, and his friend Sergeant Pio, journey from Mexico City to Monterey on a secret mission. Their assignment consists in delivering state-of-the art new guns that will help the Californians fight against Spanish royalists who, disguised as pirates, keep ransacking their towns, villages and forts. Once in Los Angeles, they meet two women, Marguerita and Filomena, who have just missed the stagecoach. Kent reluctantly accepts to escort them but soon falls for the prettier while Pio does not remain insensitive to Filomena. However, after a wonderful night in Santa Barbara, the two ladies vanish in the haze. Overcoming their disappointment, the two men hit the road again and finally reach Monterey where they are welcomed by Lieutenant Ortega, Phillip's best friend. Besides a tricky situation due to the constant attacks of the "pirates", Phillip discovers a new unsettling fact: Marguerita is there in order to be officially engaged to Ortega... —Guy Bellinger

    When tragedy strikes in the highlands, there can be only one Scotsman for the job, Sir William Sedgewick, ak.a. Sir Billi. This is an adventure story about the power of a remote Scottish, but yet international community held together by the eccentric, skateboarding veterinarian and their race to save an illegal fugitive, Bessie Boo the beaver. Sir Billi and the village clash with the law in their fight to rescue Bessie. As they brave treacherous ravines and hazardous waters in the battle to save the illegal beaver, the question remains, who will get to her first? A roller coaster adventure, Sir Billi is undoubtedly the highland hero with a host of attractive traits. From the Bond-like characteristics, to a highland grandpa who still has a way with the ladies. His tartan dungarees are often seen navigating the narrow but dramatic highland roads, with a hint of showmanship and significant skill. A heart-warming and hilarious adventure that takes you to the magical west coast highland village of Catterness in Scotland, where encounters with a goat who thinks he's a dog, an Admiral who's afraid of the water, a "town temptress" for a Baroness, and a beaver who was brought up by rabbits, are all just part of this crazy everyday highland fling. Sir Billi delivers the charm and panache that one would expect of a hero, a true "Highlander". —Billi Productions Ltd

More of a Western Film than a Pirate Movie

This movie begins with an American adventurer named "Captain Phillip Kent" (Rod Cameron) who is on his way to Monterey with a load of new rifles for the Mexican garrison stationed there to help them in their fight against pirates and Royalists who want control of the region known as Alta California. With him is his good friend "Sergeant Pio" (Mikhail Rasumny) who talks incessantly about the women he has already met and those who have yet to know him. Along the way they observe a wagon traveling at high speed and carrying two women which loses a wheel and overturns. Naturally, Captain Kent and Sergeant Pio ride to the scene to render assistance. It's at this time that Captain Kent meets the lovely "Senorita Marguerita Novarro" (Maria Montez) who tells him they were hurrying to catch the stagecoach to Monterey. Although that is the same destination Captain Kent and Sergeant Pio are headed for they deliberately mislead Senorita Novarro because their mission is extremely secretive. However, being a gentleman he offers her safe conduct to the nearby town of Los Angeles instead. Unfortunately, Sergeant Pio accidentally lets their destination slip and this results in both Senorita Novarro and her companion "Filomena" (Tamara Shayne) sneaking into the wagon when Captain Kent heads out for Monterey in the morning. What neither Captain Kent nor Senorita Novarro quite realize is that there is trouble brewing at the garrison and they are headed right into it. Now rather than reveal any more of this film and risk ruining it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that unless one is well-read on the history of California it might be somewhat difficult to understand everything that is going on. For example, the "pirates" aren't exactly the skull-and-crossbones type that many might expect. Instead they are essentially mercenaries acting under the orders of the Royalists who seek to destabilize the entire region for both military and political reasons. That said this is more of a "Western film" than a "Pirate movie". On that note, while I found this movie to be somewhat interesting I must admit that I didn't care for the character of Sergeant Pio that much as his constant warbling about women got to be rather annoying. On the other hand I thought the presence of Maria Montes--and to a lesser extent that of Gale Sondergaard (as the Governor's wife "Senora de Sola")-was quite refreshing. Be that as it may this turned out to be an okay Western movie and I rate it as about average.

In Old Monterey

Another of my Favorite Maria Montez movies!

This time she's in old California in this costumed piece. It would be great if they got this to video also!

A bit-o-trivia on this movie.......The part of a young woman played by Julia Andre was actually One of Maria's real life sisters.
