not restored color

on 12/7/2012

Although this was one of the first films released in Technicolor, there is no color in this DVD release. The transfer quality is average, at best, and there are not any DVD extras (I was hoping for something about the color version). It's a good movie if you're interested in the silent era, and has some very good stunt scenes. I did find some of the situations unrealistic, not unlike many "hero" movies of today. Read More

There is an improvement in picture quality of this release, in comparison to the older Laser disc and DVD releases. It has fairly good image quality, although the color is not as good as it was when this was originally released, due to the original negative being lost. u will like this Read More

Editors Note
Note This swashbuckling nautical adventure, starring the incomparable Douglas Fairbanks, made film history as one of the first full features shot entirely in Technicolor. Here, he plays a nobleman who wants to revenge his father's murder, so he boards a pirate vessel disguised as one of the thieving, villainous rapscallions, and sets about achieving his goal. On the high seas, the athletic Fairbanks provides a no-holds barred, rip-roaring, stunt-filled voyage -- complete with a one-man takeover of a merchant ship.

New York Times "THE BLACK PIRATE hums with energy. The surface of the image itself seems alive, swimming with particles of light." 01/14/2011
