Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Original slated for release through United Artists, the Wisberg-Yarborough production Women of Pitcairn Island was ultimately distributed by 20th Century-Fox. The film purports to detail the aftermath of the mutiny on the Bounty in the late 18th century. When the last of the male mutineers dies, the wives and daughters of the Bounty crew are left behind to make the best of things on Pitcairn Island. Trouble arises in the form of a band of pirates, who've landed on Pitcairn with the intention of hiding a cache of stolen pearls. After dallying with the ladies, the pirates come to grief by fighting amongst themselves. James Craig hams it up as the bearded pirate captain, while second-billed Lynn Bari seems grimly determined to get the film over with as quickly as possible.
