Stewart Granger was a good choice for the dubious hero of the story, a high-living dandy who heads a gang of murderous smugglers headquartering in the English coastal village of Moonfleet. Yarn opens on a Macbeth note of cold, wild-swept moors, and scary, dark shadows, establishing an eerie flavor for the kickoff.

Later, it reminds of Treasure Island a bit when Granger and a small boy go through some highly imaginative adventures.
