Editorial Reviews

Germany released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), German ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Jean Peters is at her feisty best in Anne of the Indies. Harboring a grudge against all men (and not without reason), Anne becomes 'Captain Providence,' one of the most notorious pirate leaders of the Spanish Main. Anne is pursued by French captain Pierre la Rochelle (Louis Jourdan), who intends to bring her to justice. To this end, La Rochelle makes romantic overtures to Anne, but she gloms onto his scheme and abducts the captain and his wife Molly (Debra Paget). After leaving her victims to die on a desert island, Anne relents and rescues them. She later fully redeems herself (at great personal cost) during a battle with her fiercest rival, Blackbeard (Thomas Gomez). Few actresses could have pulled off the contrarily-written title character in Anne of the Indies with as much determination and conviction as Jean Peters; surprisingly, the actress was reportedly never comfortable before the cameras, often insisting that she'd rather be a schoolteacher! ...Anne Of The Indies

5.0 out of 5 stars Jean Peters is excellent in this flick! January 16, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Anne of the Indies was purchased by Fox as a vehicle for super-star Susan Hayward. However, Fox tested newcomer Jean Peters for the role in the interim and discovered not only that she could handle this role, but could act and had exceptional athletic abilities. Jean did her own stunts in this movie. She did the sword fights and her acting was tops. This is one of the best pirate movies I've seen. Compared to more recent ones (such as Cutthroat Island) Anne offers lots more action and has a better storyline. The script was losely based on the real-life pirate Anne Bonney and was directed by the great Jacques Tournaur. Also, Peters makes a more believable pirate than Gena Davis and all those other ladies that tackled a pirate role on a film. It's a shame Fox didn't give this flick a bigger budget. It deserved more attention to extravagance. Even so, the picture has since become a classic and Peters is now being recognized as the fine performer she was. This was a demanding role and if you've seen a few of her films, you'll agree with me that she looks totally different in each one. You wouldn't think it was the same actress. Watch her in Viva Zapata, Apache and Three Coins in the Fountain and you'll see a different Jean Peters -displaying a different image in each film, but always believable. The rest of the cast in Anne is fine, specially Thomas Gomez as Blackbeard. I heard he and Jean were good friends in real life. They'd worked together in Captain from Castile before they made this one. Peters went on to become one of Fox's top female players after this movie premiered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pirate Chic July 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here's another film that should be released as part of an Archives series. As a biography of pirate Anne Bonney, it's total bunk. But this isn't a biography, it's a movie and as a movie, it's fast moving and entertaining. Not one of Jacques Tourneur's major works, but nonetheless quite watchable. Jean Peters was usually a Fox "goodie," so it was fun seeing her play a cutlass-swinging bad girl--albeit one who reforms in time to die nobly. Louis Jourdan was less icily impervious than usual doing the Randolph Scott part of the good-guy-pretending-to-be-bad-to-get-the-goods-on-the-bad-guys (Peters' Bonney and Thomas Gomez's "Blackbeard"). And, oh yeah, it's a great-looking film too. So how about a Region 1 release for the fans not blessed with an All-Regions player?

I really like these kind of movies especially with Jean Peters in the starring role. If you like pirate movies than this one is one I recommend it has all the action needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good a I remembered May 5, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
When I was 10yrs old, I watched a movie about a female pirate. The only thing that I could remember was the name of the pirate, Capt. Providence. 40yrs later after reading the likes of Branded Ann and The Seahawk, I was once again intrigued about women pirates and thanks to google, I found the movie that has haunted me for years. Well I was a bit disappointed. The action was good but the story was weak and I was really put off by the fact that Ann Providence, terror of the seas could be so easily fooled by a selfish pretty boy who done nothing but lie ever since he first stepped aboard her ship. And even though it's really only worth two or three stars at best, I gave it four out of sentiment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shiver me Timbers..... March 21, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Obscure. Forgotten...Little known...Jacques Tourneur's 1951 Technicolor "Anne of the Indies" is now more than Region 2-release. This new 20th Century Fox transfer is Region 1. "Anne of the Indies" is a swashbuckler about a 17th century woman pirate(based loosely on Anne Bonny). This "Anne" is action-packed, with sea battles and sword play...all in lush Technicolor. Captain Anne Providence(Jean Peters) is a bloodthirsty pirate trained by Blackbeard(Thomas Gomez) himself, who has also hooked her up with her own ship, the Sheba Queen, and it's crew, featuring mate Red Dougal(James Robertson Justice). Anne defeats a British frigate in the Caribbean, forcing prisoners to walk the plank. She spares handsome "Frenchie",Pierre la Rochelle(Louis Jourdan). Dr. Jameson(Herbert Marshall), the ship's alcoholic doctor, finds half of a treasure map in Pierre(Frenchie)'s room. Where's the other half? It's in Port Royal, Jamaica, the pirate stronghold. In Port Royal, Anne finds out about Frenchie's wife, Molly(Debra Paget). Sparks fly, and Anne decides to auction off Molly, her rival, at a slave-auction in Maracaibo. Jean Peters is fine in the "Anne of the Indies" lead role, mixing sex and pirate allure as good as any male buccaneer. She was once married to Howard Hughes. Thomas Gomez is big and fat, but mis-cast as Blackbeard. The great Herbert Marshall is too subdued as the doctor, but is probably intentionally restrained(as Anne's counterpart-animus, he must balance against her fiery temper). In smaller parts are William Schallert as a pirate, and Universal Pictures' regular Lester Matthews. The real star of "Anne of the Indies" is Jacques Tourneur, directing a brisk action-pirate tale in lush pink, green, and amber backgrounds. One rear-screen ocean backdrop in Anne's room looks almost real. Read more ›
