Kim’s recent mention of Anthony Quinn brought to mind one of his movies that revolves around a lie. A young girl defends herself from what she thinks is a would-be-rapist (a Dutch ship’s captain) by stabbing him with a knife. She lies and blames Quinn (a kind-hearted pirate) who is convicted of the crime and hanged.

How did they explain the lack of a stab wound on Quinn’s character? Or did they “plant” evidence?
Honestly, I don’t remember the details. I had actually misremembered the scene with the girl and the ship’s captain, thinking he really was trying to do her harm. Wikipedia set me straight.
