The dancing pirate: Musical about a timid dancing master mistaken for a pirate in early 19th-century Boston. One of the first live-action color films made.

He manages to escape with another inmate and joins a traveling carnival, only to fall in love with the leggy owner and gets involved in one slapstick mishap after another.
Hi diddle diddle: A sailor gets married but when his con-artist father shows up for the wedding it turns the couple's honeymoon plans into screwball comedy.
