  9. The Black Pirate (United Artists, 1926)

    One of the silent era’s most spectacular action blockbusters, this film also boasts an experimental early two-strip Technicolor process, making it one of the few color silent films. Douglas Fairbanks stars as a nobleman and sole survivor of a ship seized and blown up by pirates, killing everyone on board, including Fairbanks’ father.

    Fairbanks vows revenge and subsequently joins the pirate crew, walking a fine line by seeming to aid the pirates while actually protecting potential victims and plotting the pirates’ ultimate downfall.

    Enchanted Island (Warner Brothers, 1958)

    Enchanted Island bears only the faintest traces of its source material, the Herman Melville novel, Typee.

    19th century-whalers Abner Dana Andrews and Tom Don Dubbins jump ship and find refuge on a tropical island inhabited by cannibals.

    When Tom disappears, Abner jumps to the logical conclusion and vows not to end up in the pot himself. Returning to his ship, Abner is drawn back to the island by Fayaway (a miscast Jane Powell), the tribal chief’s daughter, with whom he has fallen in love…  more

    Cannibals. I am SO there.
