Anne of the Indies
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Jacques Tourneur. 1951, 81 mins. DCP. With Jean Peters, Louis Jourdan. Master genre-hopping craftsman Jacques Tourneur sets sail for the high seas with a swashbuckling Jean Peters in tow providing a colorful, ripping, action-packed gloss on the real life pirate Anne Bonny who terrorized the Caribbean in the 1700s. Tourneur’s take is Technicolor-lurid and splashy, and filled with frigate-on-frigate action, but also slyly feminist as he nimbly tracks Anne negotiating her power and desires in a violent world dominated by outsized men.
