these are not the pirates you're looking for...

every morning i wake up & wish i was somewhere else.

still working on the images & tales of St. Augustine, but along the same lines...

Burt Lancaster as the Crimson Pirate

caught most of The Crimson Pirate on one of the 8 billion movie channels yesterday evening, & had to share. it swashes, it buckles, it's in technicolor. it's slapstick, it's over-the-top, & the pirate captain clicks his heels. there's a doctor with vials of explosive liquid in a submarine, there's a mute pirate sidekick who gets airsick in the hot air balloon, & Christopher Lee says very little at all.

after all, there's nothing like pirates in drag.

That sounds so fun! And Burt L. looks so young! I have just added it to my Netflix queue.

it's all about swashing the buckle.
i'm trying to recall the last time i saw a hairy armpit on a movie poster.
really. i am wondering that.
i'm supposed to be studying, but nevermind all that...

The original Brokeback?

Still, there's something to be said about movies like these. Especially as it involves submarines and hot air balloons.

"classic" is the word, i think, hairy armpits & all.
