The Sea Hawk (1924)
The Sea Hawk – who escapes the treachery of a dastardly sea dog (Wallace Beery) and becomes the scourge of Spain’s navy. Two-time Academy Award(r) winner Frank Lloyd helms the excitement, hewing closer to the Sabatini novel than would the later Errol Flynn movie, using full-sized ships during filming and finding his sea legs years before guiding 1935’s Oscar-winning Best Picture Mutiny on the Bounty.
