Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Richard Greene stars in the medium-budget swashbuckler Captain Scarlet. Greene plays the title character, a Gallic Robin Hood, who seeks to reclaim his birthright from the usurping Duke of Corlaine (Manolo Fabregas). Forming a group of sort-of-merry men, Captain Scarlet rallies the countryside to take up arms against the despotic duke. In addition, he saves Princess Maria (Leonora Amar) from various fates worse than death at the hands of lecherous Count Villiers (Eduardo Norriega). The preponderance of Latino names in the cast of Captain Scarlet is a tip-off that the film was lensed in Mexico rather than France.
