* InNameOnly: The novel was a tale of an English gentleman framed for murder by his fiancée's brother, getting shanghaied to the Mediterranean, and converting to Islam that he might become a pirate and wreak vengeance on the people that threw him away. The movie is a tale of an English privateer and his affair with Queen Elizabeth, with a bit of background about the Spanish Armada.

* StockFootage: Portions of the battle scenes are lifted from earlier Warners' silents; the attentive viewer can catch glimpses of Napoleonic ship design and costumes among the 16th century piracy.

** The scenes of Doña Maria's carriage traveling through the countryside were taken from ''David Copperfield''. The film had to be darkened to disguise the fact that the carriage depicted was clearly too modern for this film's Elizabethan setting.

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.
