Silent Cinema: The Black Pirate

Posted: March 4, 2018

Douglas Fairbanks’ The Black Pirate. Originally released 1926. Presented here in black and white, it was originally shot in two strip technicolor. If you’d like to see it in color (and lower quality) check here.

This is a rip roaring adventure, and many feel it’s Fairbanks’ best film. I don’t know that I’d go that far, but it’s worth watching for sure.
