Captain Kidd - Saturday Morning Serial
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and also, presumably, really hot cobblestones.
It had been my intention to "hilariously" redub this full serial from 1953, and yknow...maybe next year, thats just what will happen. I'm sure it will be good.
The 15 part story is actually pretty good, being one of the few Kidd stories to address the nature of his unfair reputation. In 1697, agents Richard Dale and Alan Duncan are sent on an undercover mission by the British Fleet to find and gather information on the notorious pirate, Captain William Kidd. Dale and Duncan soon join Kidd's crew and discover, to their surprise, that the Captain is far different than they had expected.
This is episode 9 "Pirate Against Pirate"...don't worry...it's not very hard to pick up whats happening and theres more swordfights in this episode...
