Drake of England / Drake the Pirate (1935) Arthur B. Woods, Matheson Lang, Athene Seyler, Jane Baxter, Action, Biography, Drama

Drake of England was released variously to the British Empire, its commonwealths and the United States as Drake the Pirate and Elizabeth of England. In an agreeably compact fashion, the film recounts the exploits of British privateer Sir Francis Drake (played by the slightly long-in-tooth Matheson Lang), culminating with his 1588 triumph over the Spanish Armada. Athene Seyler appears as Queen Elizabeth I, bad wig and all. A goodly portion of screen time is devoted to the secret marriage between Drake and one of Elizabeth’s ladies-in-waiting (Jane Baxter). Drake of England was based on a flagwaving stage play by Louis N. Parker.
