CGiii Comment

In this overly-fondly thought of film, no-one seems to notice that the acting (and writing) are truly abysmal.
 
There are a few characters that are a bit poofy - that might be down to the campy acting - one scene with two sailors chatting is definitely suspicious......bum chums on the high sea.
 
It does ask a daring question: would you disguise yourself as a woman in order to save your own life?!?!??!?!?

It is interesting to see the bits that Cameron 'used' for his version.......but now, listening to all the received pronunciation makes it terribly difficult to take it seriously.
