Prince of Pirates
In this classic pirate film, in the 16th century kingdom in the Netherlands, the newly crowned King Stephan concludes a secret treaty with the Spanish. This puts him at odds with his younger brother, Prince Roland, Barbara Rush plays Countess Nita Orde who is held prisoner by villains as rescue bait. after a brief interrogation scene, where she reveals nothing to the baddies, she's gagged with gray cloth and seated on a large cask, bound with leather straps. She struggles and succeeds in kicking a small powder keg into a campfire to warn an approaching ship of an ambush.
