How about "Muppet Treasure Island"? Just saw it again last night on tv. I think it's cute and really funny too! Love the music as well.

Iron Bess told me an mine about "swashbuckler" with Robert Shaw and James Earl Jones. It just arrived the other day. Seen it once...kinda like cutthroat island (campy, but fun).

Hmm... can't say much of favorites.. since I haven't see a lot of them. I JUST saw "Long John Silver" the other day on a local TV station... been wanting to see that for many years!

I agree with Hawkyns.. the Charlton Heston "Treasure Island" is the best on thus far! LOVE it! Heston made a FANTASTIC Silver. Disney's "Treasure Island" I still love as well. Robert Newton was so great. I would like to see "Blackbeard the Pirate" sometime. ::knocks on the wood of the Black Pearl:::

LOVE "The Goonies"!! Just great!

"Pirates".. I saw it once, kinda remember it, not much though. But I liked it. "Muppet Treasure Island"... Yeah I watched it the other night as well, Christine. I just laughed at a few spots including when Silver was singing in the galley when we first meet him... ahhhh, brought back memories when at the Chicago get together. :ph34r:

I've seen "The Buccaneer"... Yul Bryner & Charlton Heston - again more Heston involved in pyratical fun - got to love those 2.

Still pirate movie deprived. So.. need to find them & watch them.

But... my favs... be "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" & "the Goonies".

Harr...

Whilst makin' me way down th' sidewalk yesterd'y, sunny an' clear, I came alongside o' a yard sale. An' thar she were: Treasure Island starrin' Charlton Heston. I took 'er home fer $3 and me family an' I gave it a once over.

T'were a right powerful an' movin' performance an' seemed ta be true ta period, although, with a few small liberties takin' from th' acktual text, but none th' worst fer it. Th' entire Rogue family enjoyed it theroughly an' it lacked not fer action an' excitement a'tall. Why in fact, young Cap'n Kid beseeched me an' missus Rogue ter let 'im stay up past 'is watch in order ta see th' conclusion with th' promise of runnin' off ta brush 'is teef and jump inter 'is bunk jest as soon as t'were over.

He was as good as 'is word.

Yers,

-Spydre

I think mine would be a toss up between

Captain Blood

Treasure Island

and

Captains Courageous

It be a tough call, but since I got one o' them new fangled VCR machines I don't gotta choose wat movie house ta go ta.

How about "Yellowbeard" with some of Monty Python, some of the Mel Brooks gang and Cheech and Chong. That was the first Pirate movie I ever saw.

And while we're on the subject of Monty Python, how about a Viking movie? "Erik the Viking" anyone?

The new Peter Pan will be out on May 4th... be sure to get "Master and Commander" out on DVD today... not pirates, but a great period piece!! There was a pretty good Disney movie that came out in the early 90's about two kids marooned by pirates... it was called "Shipwrecked" maybe? Anyone remember this movie? I'd be interested in seeing it again to see if it still equals my memories of it . . .just got Crimson Pirate on DVD, HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

Disney's Peter Pan! Though it's not on DVD... and the sequel is not worth it.

Just got the collector's edition of Master and Commander,... it came with an ad for two movies I've never heard of, but they look to have been made in the late 50's-early 60's? They are called "The High Wind in Jamaica" (starring Anthony Quinn as the pirate captain) and "The Pirates of Tortuga"... I'll look for 'em, and let you know, unless someone here has already seen 'em...

"Muppets Treasure Island" is my second favorite all the way ... I also really liked the newest "Peter Pan" to come out (and "Hook" as well) ... and I need to see more pirate movies before I can pick any other favorites!

I just rented "The Seahawk" starring Errol Flynn, and the exact same cast, and identical plot to the classic "Robin Hood", right down to the love affair between Alan Hale and the heroine's handmaiden.

Fun film! I give it two bottoms up!

Personally, "Captain Blood" has always been my fav' pirate movie, though "Against All Flags" and "Muppet Treasure Island" come close.

Aye, good movies.

'Twas fun watchin' Captain Blood with a theater full o' Pirates, at the PiP festival in Key West.

I hope they do more of the same this year.
