'''''Nate and Hayes''''' (also known as ''Savage Islands'' in Europe) is a {{Swashbuckler}} adventure film from 1983.

Set in the South Pacific during the late 1800's, the film centers upon {{Pirate}} Captain Bully Hayes, who gets caught by the authorities in the opening for dealing arms to the islanders. In prison he retells the events that lead him there; 18 months before, he transferred two missionaries, Nathaniel "Nate" Williamson and his betrothed Sophie, to the Island of Wakaya. He took a liking to Sophie and accepted her offer to become business partners.

However, after Bully's departure his archenemy Ben Pease, a "blackbirder" (slaver) who has been framing Bully for his crimes for years, attacks the island, taking its inhabitants for the slave-market and [[DamselInDistress kidnapping Sophie]] while he's at it. Nate teams up with Bully to get her back. While chasing Ben they run into Count Heinrich von Rittenberg, representative of ImperialGermany, who plans to start coal mines and anchoring points for the Empire with the help of Ben Pease's "merchandise."

The film stars Creator/TommyLeeJones as Bully Hayes and it was partially written by Creator/JohnHughes.
