CD release of the 1958 Columbia lp version.
This 1958 original soundtrack presents the thrilling music composed by Elmer Bernstein (Oscar nominee for this year's Far From Heaven). The Buccaneer was one of the most lavish and exciting screen spectacles of the time. In the great tradition of such Cecil B. De Mille productions as The Ten Commandments, The Greatest Show on Earth, Samson and Delilah and many others, this production, directed by Anthony Quinn was to be the last effort overseen by the legendary Mr. De Mille. The film boasts an international cast that includes Yul Brynner, Claire Bloom, Charles Boyer, Inger Stevens, and Charlton Heston.

When Cecil B. DeMille was set to direct a re-make of his 1938 swashbuckler The Buccaneer and suddenly became ill, his son-in-law, Anthony Quinn, jumped into DeMille's jodhpurs. In this version, Yul Brynner plays the starring role of debonair pirate Jean Lafitte, who is contacted by General Andrew Jackson (Charlton Heston) to come to the aid of the United States when the British attack New Orleans during the War of 1812. Lafitte immediately falls in love with Annette Claiborne (Inger Stevens), the daughter of William Claiborne (E.G. Marshall), the first governor of Louisiana. 1958
