Movie to Tape

May 18, 1997|Kevin Thomas

The Black Pirate (AMC Tuesday at midnight). This 1926 near-quintessential pirate movie shows star-writer Douglas Fairbanks in his prime: a bounding nobleman disguised as a black-clad, raffish, bare-chested buccaneer, charming whole galleons with his smile and subduing shiploads with his sword. Two better movies took this one as their main model: Minnelli's "The Pirate" and Siodmak's "The Crimson Pirate." One of a series of Fairbanks films airing on AMC.
