Errol Flynn in "Captain Blood"
Errol Flynn in "The Sea Hawk"*
Robert Newton in the 1950 version of "Treasure Island"
Burt Lancaster in "The Crimson Pirate"
Tyrone Power in "The Black Swan"
Charles Laughton in "Captain Kidd"**
*OK, technically Flynn's character is a privateer, not a pirate.
** Has about as much to do with historical reality as his Captain Bligh in "Mutiny on the Bounty," but hey ...
Not Classics, But Fun:
Robert Shaw in "Swashbuckler"
Tommy Lee Jones in "Nate and Hayes"
Errol Flynn in "Against All Flags"
Yul Brynner (??) in some movie about Jean Lafitte
Geena Davis in "Cuthroat Island" (*looks* great, but it's dramatically inert and *nobody* seems to be having any fun)
Don't forget the sadly little-known 2003 version of Peter Pan.
What about Finding Neverland? More about playing pirates than about pirates, but still. Also is just a great movie.
Also, The Princess Bride, although Dread Pirate Roberts really looks like more of a ninja... but I guess that's part of why he's awesome (ninja-pirates are teh sexxay).
"That one guy" is Alan Tudyk, probably most well-known for being Wash in Firefly/Serenity, and also plays some poor guy who is accidentally fed hallucinogens instead of Valium in "Death at a Funeral." Anyone who hasn't seen either of these must get their butts away from the computer and do so.
I mean, the "Firefly" crew is sort of like space pirates... >.> Or space rumrunners, at any rate.
Isn't there also some awful movie that's actually about space pirates that I thankfully have not seen?
Robert Shaw couldn't get away from sea movies, I guess. You can find the DVD's of his t.v. show from the 50's called "The Bucanneers." He played a reformed pirate captain.
I do the same with the 2nd and 3rd POTC movies - for about the same reason.
There is a good docudrama about Blackbeard - sorry I can't recall the name, think it was under the National Geographic banner.
Wish I could find more really good pirate films. "Master and Commander" was great, but not even close to "pirate".
