Jaws producers David Brown and Richard Zanuck shelled out for another Peter Benchley book, with the author also scripting, but this time, audiences didn’t bite. R-rated bloodletting ensues when investigative reporter Michael Caine and son Jeffrey Frank are shanghaied into a primitive pirate cabal captained by David Warner. The stellar filmmaking team includes cinematographer Henri Decaë (Purple Noon) and costumer Ann Roth (The English Patient).
