About Pirate Movies
In English-speaking popular culture, the modern pirate stereotype owes its attributes mostly to the imagined tradition of the 18th century Caribbean pirate sailing off the Spanish Main and to such celebrated 20th century depictions as Captain Hook and his crew in the theatrical and film versions of Peter Pan, Robert Newton’s portrayal of Long John Silver in the 1950 film of Treasure Island, and various adaptations of the Eastern pirate, Sinbad the Sailor.
In these and countless other books, movies, and legends, pirates are portrayed as “swashbucklers” and “plunderers.”
They are shown on ships, often wearing eyepatches or peg legs, having a parrot perched on their shoulder, and saying phrases like “Arr, matey” and “Avast, me hearty.”
Pirates have retained their image through pirate-themed tourist attractions, traditional film and toy portrayals of pirates, and the continued performance and reading of books and plays featuring pirates. (Source)
