Storyline

That pirates used to sail off the coast of California around Catalina is a good excuse to hold a pirate themed party on the island. The centerpiece of the party, which is attended by a cavalcade of Hollywood luminaries, is a musical comedy revue emceed by Pirate Captain Chester Morris, and backed up musically by Charles 'Buddy' Rogers and his California Cavaliers. The party guests are wearing pirate costumes, and all the acts in the revue have a pirate and/or nautical theme. Written by Huggo

what a swell person he must have been, as for this short, it's great!
30 October 2012 | by francois-fermierSee all my reviews

If anyone is still seeing this, do you know if it was Mr. Rogers who also sang the Avalon song at the movies beginning title? Am thinking it must have been, the singer pronounced every word so clearly and had such a pleasant voice. I think this Mr. Rogers must have been a wonderful person, and so talented! Not only was he so lively and cheerful, but he played all those musical instruments! I read also that he was an flying instructor during the war. Really multi talented! Am sorry failed to write him a letter before he died to tell him how much he is admired in this house.

We have the Pirates Party on one of those disks that look like a 45rmp record. It is so clear, almost "HD," and in full color. Enjoyed it very much. I think also their version of We're in the money was even better than the one from the Warner Bros. movie.
