The eminent Austrian composer, Music/ErichWolfgangKorngold, who had been driven from his home by the Nazi ''Anschluss'', having already produced outstanding scores for two previous Flynn swashbucklers, ''Film/CaptainBlood'' and ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood'', undertook to score ''The Sea Hawk'' as well. The resulting score was a lush Late Nineteenth Century evocation of the spirit of the sea, of adventure, and of romance, characterized by [[Creator/RichardWagner Wagnerian]] themes and [[{{Leitmotif}} Leitmotifs]], and seasoned with hints of Spanish rhythms and Elizabethan lute-songs (Maria sings the original song, "Stood a Maiden at Her Window," accompanying herself on a lute). The music garnered Korngold an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination for Best Music Score (losing to AlfredNewman's ''Tin Pan Alley'') and has been considered a classic of film music ever since.

ErrolFlynn plays a much more controlled, subdued character as [[TheCaptain Captain Geoffrey Thorpe]] than in his previous swashbucklers; Thorpe is a man driven solely by his patriotic duty. Creator/OliviaDeHavilland having rejected the part of Doña Maria for fear of type-casting (she was, moreover, at odds with the Warners' management over her insistence on playing the part of Melanie in ''Film/GoneWithTheWind''), was replaced by Brenda Marshall, who made a lusciously raven-haired, sloe-eyed, aristocratic Spanish lady. Similarly fearing to play to type, Basil Rathbone rejected the part of the scheming [[TheDragon Lord Wolfingham]], and was replaced by the icily evil-sounding Henry Daniell. Montague Love took the part of [[TheBigBad King Philip II]], and Creator/ClaudeRains played Maria's Satanic-appearing but ultimately rather sympathetic uncle.

''The Sea Hawk'' is a 1940 Creator/WarnerBros {{Swashbuckler}} of [[{{Pirate}} piracy]] in the age of [[UsefulNotes/ElizabethI Elizabeth I]], directed by Creator/MichaelCurtiz, and starring Creator/ErrolFlynn, Brenda Marshall, and Flora Robson; notable minor roles were sustained by Donald Crisp, Alan Hale, Sr., Henry Daniell, and Creator/ClaudeRains. Though the film took its name from [[Literature/TheSeaHawk the 1915 novel]] by Creator/RafaelSabatini, it featured an almost entirely original screenplay by Howard Koch and Seton I. Miller, based loosely on the life of Sir Francis Drake and the [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfTudor story of the Spanish Armada]]. (It shows some influence from the 1937 Armada film ''FireOverEngland'', which also starred Flora Robson, as well as a young Creator/LaurenceOlivier and Vivien Leigh.)

Sabatini's picaresque novel had already been filmed as a silent in 1924, a version that hewed much more closely to the book. The 1940 film was deliberately designed not only as an adventure film, but also as a call to rally to the defense of Britain, then threatened by the [[WorldWarII Nazi juggernaut]]. The film was originally intended to end with a shot of England's modern-day battle-fleet; as it is, it ends with a speech by Robson denouncing "ambition of one man" who threatens peace for all -- the parallel between Philip of Spain and [[AdolfHitler Adolf of Germany]] being [[{{Anvilicious}} all too obvious]]. It was, indeed, this [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped timely message]], delivered before America had entered the war, that caused this film to be ranked, along with ''Lady Hamilton'', as one of WinstonChurchill's favorite films.
