BLACK PIRATE, THE (1926)

Silent with recorded sountrack score composed by Mortimer Wilson, conducted by Robert Israel

Don't miss Douglas Fairbanks at his swashbuckling best. Funny, fast-paced and furiously inventive, THE BLACK PIRATE was one of the first films shot in color (two-color Technicolor). Hoping to avenge the death of his father, the noble-born Fairbanks disguises himself as the Black Pirate to infiltrate a band of buccaneers. Among the film's many iconic stunts and indelible images: Fairbanks sliding down a ship's sail on the point of a knife; our hero singlehandedly fencing against a cadre of swordsmen; and the surreal attack of an underwater army. DIR Albert Parker; SCR Jack Cunningham; SCR/PROD Douglas Fairbanks. U.S., 1926, color, 84 min. NOT RATED
