Ty Power is too good an actor for this silliness and Maureen O'Hara is too poor an actress to make the silliness interesting.
Maureen and Ty
Rip Maureen O'Hara. The Black Swan- also the Long Grey Line - paired dark romantic Tyrone with lovely redheaded firecracker Maureen. A geat cinematic team with excellent on-screen chemistry from the golden age of Hollywood. We are so lucky to have these glorious movies to enjoy and remember our favorite stars by.
Excellent Pirate Fare
Like today's "Caribbean" movie pirates, the dastardly fiends swarming aboard The Black Swan are there to amuse and delight. And they do. From ferocious George Sanders to bellicose Liard Cregar-what a crew! Sword in hand and a blinding smile on his face, Tyrone Power can't be beat at virile swashbuckling. Beautiful Maureen O 'Hara, never a shrinking damsel, is great as the spirited yet reluctant subject of his advances. It's all for fun. Great movie with all the old-time Hollywood touches like a terrific score and eye -popping costumes.
We Loved It
My husband and I turned on the TV yesterday AM and caught most of the Black Swan. Great fun. We actually laughed out loud. What wonderful stars Tyrone Power and Maureen O 'Hara were, and how good looking! We loved seeing them playing their antagonistic parts to the hilt. Oh and I can't forget to mention the great George Sander and a pretty young looking Anthony Quinn. I'll take this kind of fun fantasy over today's ugly vampire, robotic and monster-laden fare anytime. TCM please keep this one on rotation.
The Ugly Duckling
Tyrone Power is no swashbuckler. I like Power, but he doesn't look like a pirate in this film, instead he looks like a dink.
The Black Swan

If you like pirate pictures, big sailing ships, cannons and action this might be the one you want to see. I saw this film with my folks just after it came out, on the big screen and in full color. For fun, I bought the DVD and saw it again and remembered most of it as it was. Good films are hard to forget. Let's hope that TCM will show it more often, it's a great picture with great actors, sets, props and effects.Warren Sjoberg
Thank you TCM for showing The Black Swan. Really enjoyable show. OHara and Power were two talented and beautiful movie stars! Loved Mitchell Sanders Quinn & Cregar too.
Sanders The Pirate
He's no Basil Rathbone,but Sanders was funny.Powers is no Basil,either,he's too pretty to be convincing,but fun movie anywho
the black swan sizzles
Like a comic opera its all dash and bluster, played for fun and romance as the cast ham it up with grest abandon. This is in every way the spiritual precursor to the pirate movies that have become so popular in recent years. Tyrone Power and Maureen OHara are a great team and their snarling and sparing scenes are played for maximum effect--all flashing eyes and high spirit. Rest of the cast are wonderful and into the spirit of happy swash and buckle. Go along for the ride. The great Technicolor cinematography won the Academy Award and it is something to see. Enjoy this romp
The Black Swan
A dazzling, swashbuckling adventure film. Power is great as a romancing, adventure-seeking Captain, Sanders hams-it up as a renegade pirate. Won an Oscar for it's sumptuous photography and Newman's score heighten action scenes, the story is straight-forward and predictable. A good pirate film that's always entertaining. I give it a 3.5/5.
Uns dos meus filmes preferidos
Este filme timo. Muita aventura, ao e romance movem a trama do filme. Uma bela Maureen o' Hara e uns dos maiores astros dos anos 40 Tryone Power. Um filme que j no se faz hoje em dia. Eu adoro filme de piratas. O TCM deveria apresentar o filme. Ele brilhante.
The Black Swan
I have seen the Black Swan several times over the years and one of its attributes was the excellent quality of the technicolor. From the very first scene, I could tell that something was terribly wrong with the color in the new DVD version. Heavy hues is an understatement. The costumes appeared overcolored and the backgrounds looked like they were painted, rather than filmed. There is nothing visually natural about the natural backgrounds. The current DVD version is a restoration or rather a failed attempt to restore the original vivid technicolor quality. Comparisons of unrestored and restored scenes are presented in the "Special Features." The comparisons are the only proof one needs to recognize that the original, albeit faded, technicolor print was superior to the restoration.
The Black Swan
This is a classic pirate film and my favorite. Tyrone Power as Jamie Waring is excellent casting along with Thomas Mitchell, Maureen O'Hara and Laird Cregar and so many others. I love this film! Thank you to whomever brought this film to your schedule. I am a BIG fan of Tyrone Power.
The Black Swan
What a entertainment this movie was. Kept me interested every moment. Exciting, romantic, fun, witty and fast moving. A must see for any movie lovers. An adventure on the high seas. The fact that Tyrone Power named his own boat, Black Swan, proves he loved the adventures of the movie too.
Classic Pirate Movie!
