Storyline

Rivaling Pirates and Spanish gold are the ingredients for this story. Blackie the pirate is the one who first hears from this shipment of gold when he encounters "Don" Pedro. He thinks of a plan to find this ship and its gold. His counter player is the vice roy of the Spanish kolony. When they visit one of the pirate settlements, they find three other pirate captains over there. One of them sells goods and prisoners from his latest capture. Don Pedro recognizes the wife of the vice roy, and Blackie buys her. However, one of the pirate captains, Skull, knows also who she is, and tries to make a deal. Blackie refuses, and Skull makes a deal with the other two pirate captains to plot against Blackie. Written by Ørnås

Hill&Spencer as buccaneers!
7 August 2006 | by (CGSM,Soseaua Nationala 49) – See all my reviews

To me,this is the paragon for the swashbucklers.This is how to do a swashbuckler."Blackie the Pirate" sets a standard for the genre.It gives a concrete idea on how such a movie ought to be.Very picturesque,and visually pleasing,"Blackie ..." has everything that I request from a movie of this kind:humor,fun,a handsome lead (T. Hill),good cast (George Martin,Bud Spencer) ,fluency,attractive music,sexy women (Silvia Monti,Mónica Randall,Diana Lorys),a film made by men who think and have a powerful sense of epic.These Italians used to had an incredible sens of fun. Horrors,westerns,Peplums,crime movies,SF,swashbucklers,WW 2 movies,comedy,sex drama,etc.,they hit the nail on the head.The French failed lamentably to take over all these "commercial" genres,but the Italians hit it.(It is true that I know a few outstanding French genre movies;but,with the Italians,outstanding is the rule.)And they were able to bring in Gemma,Nero,Hill,etc..To me,the Italian cinema is a source of inexhaustible pleasure.The Italians are for the fun what the French are for the novels,or the Germans for the music.They have the skill for doing EVERYTHING right.So,this Italian swashbuckler,"Blackie ...",IS a swashbuckler.

The two Italian actors have a lot of fun in this movie.(But "Blackie ..." is not a buddy film,as Spencer got only a bit part,though an excellent one.)The cast is very good.The girls were some 25-30 years when they appeared in Corsaro Nero.

A movie made out of love for fun.(A bluff like the Granger "Scaramouche" can not bear comparison with "Blackie ...".That "Scaramouche" can not pretend to be "a different kind" of movie;it is only a banal and stupid movie,lacking any charm.)

Gicca Palli did not make many movies.
