Even in the 80′s, Pirates Rocked

Posted on October 19th, 2010 in Movies / TV

This is from the beginning of The Pirate Movie, a film that had many moments of awkwardness, and a very few moments of shining brilliance. This clip is one of the latter, so enjoy and be glad it’s not a ruby codpiece.

Seriously, you’ve just seen the best part of the movie. I’d say don’t bother with the rest, but then you’d miss the lightsaber battle.

  1. Arr..’tis campy fun!
    And- fer those that wonder, the opening scene visuals are from the Tyrone Power movie The Black Swan- one o’ the finest pirate movies made!

  2. I thought it was one of the best movies! Watched it at least a dozen times on cable back in the 80s. Liked it so much in fact that I recorded the audio with a cassette recorder so I could listen to it. Even went and mowed lawns to get the money to buy the soundtrack (had to pay a neighbor to drive me to the mall to get it, too).

  3. I love this movie…based on Gilbert and Sullivan Pirates of Penzance which I also love.
