The Black Pirate (1926)

In this landmark, silent two-strip Technicolored classic swashbuckler buccaneer tale by director Albert Parker, one of the first great pirate movies:

  • the greatest rapier and dagger dueling scene ever captured between a pirate captain (Anders Randolf) and vengeful "Michel" - the Black Pirate (aka The Duke of Arnoldo) (Douglas Fairbanks, Sr.)
  • his rescue of the Princess Isobel (Billie Dove)
  • the super-spectacular stunt of the Black Pirate's ride down a ship's two canvas sails/drapes on the tip of his knife to reach the lower deck
