  1. I like your selections Mark, but I don’t think Master and Commander can count as a pirate film, even though it is great.
    Here’s some others for you:
    Treasure Island (1950) – a great book and a great film. Has to be the first pirate with a wooden leg!
    Yellowbeard (1983) – made by Graham Chapman from Monty Python gang.
    The Crimson Pirate (1952) – stars Burt Lancaster
    Captain Blood (1935), The Sea Hawk (1940), Against All Flags (1952), The Master of Ballantrae (1953) – all starring Errol Flynn known as the “King of the Swashbucklers.”

    And not forgetting Captain Phillips – a modern tale of Somali pirates. More psychological perspective than an action swashbuckler
