Transcript:

PAVILION, SELSEY. Samuel Goldwyn's production, "THE PRINCESS AND THE PIRATE," a Technicolor comedy starring Bob Hope, opens at the Pavilion, Selsey, on Monday. The supporting cast is headed by Virginia Mayo, and includes Walter Slezak, Walter Brennan and Victor McLaglen. Centred in the 18th century, the sparkling plot deals with the hilarious adventures of Sylvester The Great, a cautious actor, who, en route to the West Indies, is captured together with the beautiful princess Margaret by a band of bloodthirsty buccaneers led by The Hook, the most ferocious pirate of the Spanish Main, in a sea fight, which in itself is a classic film spectacle. Will Hay and Claude Hulbert can be seen on Thursday in "THE GHOST OF ST MICHAELS."
