Summary
Gilbert and Sullivan's classic musical comedy of mistaken identity comes swashbuckling to the screen with all the laughs, songs, and stars that made it a long-running Broadway smash. This spectacular production adds some contemporary flash to the classic farce which follows the adventures of a roguish pirate leader and his young charge through numerous love affairs and sword battles
