Tiger of the Seven Seas / La tigre dei sette mari (1962)

3.0 out of 5

Tiger of the Seven Seas is a pirate themed romance, tale of betrayal and intergender power struggle. A light beverage of buccaneering and bodices.

Gianna Maria Canale is great in a lead role and throws herself into the enthusiastic and energetic swordplay with gusto. Her love interest and and sometimes rival, the one time Mr Anita Ekberg, is far less convincing, or indeed interesting.

Fans of vintage pirate movies and other fluffy adventure fare should enjoy this but most will find the film a mildly amusing diversion for the weekend matinée crowd.
