1926, US (73 min.) - Directed by Albert Parker, 35mm  

Written and starring Douglas Fairbanks.  This fast paced pirate tale shows a mature Fairbanks at his swashbuckling best.  One of the first films shot in color ("2 strip technicolor") this film combines a gripping plot with some of the most gorgeous footage of the silent era.  Faribanks is the Black Pirate who sets out to revenge the death of his father.  Two of Fairbanks' most memorable scenes are in this film:  sliding down the sail of a ship on the point of a knife, and the totally surreal  attack of the underwater army.   And, of course, a beautiful new print! 35mm.
