If the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie is just a bit too long for you, and you would prefer a pirate adventure in the half hour range, then try "The Treasure Chest of Don Jose."
This is a story about a pirate curse, a kidnapping, and a buried treasure of gold that plays out in 1950's era Cape Cod. The treasure was left there many years earlier by Don Jose, the King of the Pirates, but the problem is that he and his descendants have all been cursed. So, retrieving the buried chest turns out to be tricky for Don Jose's great-grandson.
Suspense presented this story three times, the first with J. Carroll Naish in the lead role on February 4, 1952, and the last with Raymond Burr on October 12, 1958. Here is the second of the three presentations. It aired on June 6, 1956, and stars Broadway, television, and movie actor Edgar Barrier. The role of the police chief was played by Joseph Kearns. Christopher Anthony wrote the radioplay.
