Don't forget "Pirates of the Plain" with Tim Curry. Great little flick about a pirate time traveled to modern day Nebraska..... :rolleyes:

Great film that few folk seem to have seen!

Another favorite of mine, though much, much darker - not for kids - and not so much pyrate as period is The Libertine. It's based on the life of John Wilmot, Second Earl of Rochester.

I pulled out the cheap, cheap DVD copy of Hallmark's Blackbeard . . . (the soap opera one)

I forgot just how BAD and STUPID it really was . . .

It is only decent if you are drunk with other pirate buddies making fun of it.

It makes the National Geographic one look REAL good . . .

At least the CHRONOLOGY has something to so with reality (even for all ITS issues).

I wish I had wasted the time watching Master and Commander or The Black Swan!

I was happy that somebody mentioned "Sandokan" too, because I love him.

But there are lots others which aren't mentioned in the list... even if they aren't new.

The Angelique series, with Michele Mercier and Robert Hossein, another beautiful corsair (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057846/ - the first movie in the 5 of the series)

The Sea Pirate with Gerard Barray (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061047/ ) - the title I was habituated with was "Surcouf le corsaire" - and the follow -up - "The great coup of Surcouf - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061103/

Then, the telenovelas - "Corazon Salvaje", with Eduardo Palomo, and "Pasion" with Fernando Colunga...

Caveat emptor! Picked up the newly rereleased DVD, "The Buccaneers" 1958 from Barnes and Noble. The artwork on the disc is correct, however the movie encrypted on it is some avant guarde psuedosex documentary named "Women, Art, Revolution" from 2010. Oliver Films stock number 0F356, bar code 8 87090 03560.

Morgan was that "The Buccaneer" with Yul Brynner from 1958 or another movie? I truly hope not because I have to actually go buy a copy on DVD [all I have is a VHS i have had for years]. Yul Brynner did a pretty good job in that movie, admittedly the clothing was off [more the material than the pattern] and it had many stereotypes in it, but all in all it was a good movie that did show the "use" of Pirates and Privateers to an area. Plus Brynner just has that presence that makes you believe him in most any part,...lol.
