The Black Pirate Photos

Movie Info

Sworn to avenge his father's murder, a young aristocrat takes on a new role as an infamous pirate, cheerfully pillaging the seven seas until he achieves proper justice. This rapid-paced, silent Douglas Fairbanks swashbuckler, rampant with stuntwork and including early Technicolor scenes, is topnotch fun.

Audience Reviews for The Black Pirate

  • Mar 10, 2020
    Quite literally a forgotten gem of an action/adventure movie, filled with special effects, exciting sequences, a charming damsel in distress (Billie Dove), a dastardly villain (Sam De Grasse) who nearly out-wows the hero, this is all topped by the ever athletic Douglas Fairbanks, who virtually imprints the definition of filmic heroism on the art itself. Spectacular is the only word for it.

    A Classic from the silent-era and a wonderful pirate film that has action, romance and amazing stunts. Douglas Fairbanks is incredible in the lead role and the film is just a pure pleasure to watch! Highly Recommended if you are into Silent films!

    A fantastic pirate movie! I really enjoyed it, it's got adventure, action, excitement, romance, and even technicolor! Fairbanks was an amazing acrobat, and a good choice for a pirate movie. If you like pirate movies, I highly recommend this classic film.
