Black Pirate, The (1926 Douglas Fairbanks Jr.)

Black Pirate, The (1926 Douglas Fairbanks Jr.)

This swashbuckling nautical adventure, starring the incomparable Douglas Fairbanks, made film history as one of the first full features shot entirely in Technicolor. Here, he plays a nobleman who wants to revenge his father's murder, so he boards a pirate vessel disguised as one of the thieving, villainous rapscallions, and sets about achieving his goal. On the high seas, the athletic Fairbanks provides a no-holds barred, rip-roaring, stunt-filled voyage -- complete with a one-man takeover of a merchant ship.
After pirates cause the death of his father, a young man joins their band to seek revenge . . . and save the girl. Mary Pickford doubles for Billie Dove for the final hug of the film.              Starring: Douglas Fairbanks Sr., Billie Dove, Tempe Pigott, Donald Crisp, Sam De Grasse, Anders Randolf, Charles Stevens, Charles Belcher, Fred Becker, Barry Norton, E.
