Alternate ending to “The Black Swan” (’42), or another movie?

1 post in this topic

 Hoping someone can help me with this.

I just rewatched The Black Swan (1942), which I recorded from TCM the other day. I’m sure most of you know it, but if not it’s a fun swashbuckler with a great supporting performance by Laird Cregar, who ends up walking away with the picture. Anyway, I’d seen the movie before, and I could have sworn that it ended with Cregar taking his place back in Jamaica and exposing Maureen O’Hara’s lily-livered original boyfriend (she falls in love with Tyrone Power by fade-out, of course) as a traitor. I still can’t believe that’s not the ending in the version I just watched.

Is there another version of it like that? I can’t find anything online that says so, but the version I had watched was the DVD, and as I said what I just watched on TCM. If not, am I conflating it with another movie—is there another pirate movie that ends with a traitor being exposed in a parliament? I could have sworn this was it.

Thanks very much in advance.
