"I was only trying to cheat death. I was only trying to surmount for a little while the darkness that all my life I surely knew was going to come rolling in on me some day and obliterate me. I was only trying to stay alive a little brief while longer, after I was already gone." Robert Siodmak didn't write that paragraph; it was penned by one of his collaborators, the great pulp fatalist Cornell Woolrich.

"The Crimson Pirate" (1952), directed by Robert Siodmak. 104 minutes. No rating. A spoof of all those Errol Flynn pirate movies. The pirates say "arrrgh" a lot and tend to get their peg legs stuck in the grills over the hatches. And this time it's Burt Lancaster who gets to be gallant as hell.
