  1. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Black Pirate

    Swashbuckling, scheming, and maneuvering. All the necessary elements for a rousing pirate adventure. Many of the stunts created in this 1926 movie have been endlessly replicated since; rarely as well. Filmed in early two strip technicolor, this was one of the first color movies and the digitally restored color looks pretty good, giving a sense of what it looked like then. It must have been astonishing.

  2. Roscoe's rating of the film The Black Pirate

    Tasty entertainment, sumptuous production values, and Fairbanks. Enjoy.

  3. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Black Pirate

    Before Jack Sparrow there was Fairbanks. And he pulls off some great swashbuckling fun.
