International Talk Like a Pirate Day (on September 19) is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. An observer of this holiday would greet friends not with "Hello, everyone!" but with "Ahoy, maties!" or "Ahoy, me hearties!". The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.
Słynny osiemnastowieczny pirat, kapitan Vallo, znany także jako Karmazynowy Pirat, wraz ze swoją załogą przejmuje hiszpański galeon transportujący broń i amunicję. Vallo decyduje się sprzedać skradziony arsenał przywódcy rebeliantów zwanemu El Libre, który znajduje się na wyspie Cobra. Jednakże hiszpański baron Jose Gruda, oferuje mu 50 000 florenów w zamian za dostarczenie mu El Libre. Karmazynowy Pirat musi więc wybierać między Hiszpanami i rebeliantami. Musi on także zapanować nad własną załogą, która buntuje się przeciw niemu.
Captain Kidd is a 1945 adventure film starring Charles Laughton, Randolph Scott and Barbara Britton. It was directed by Rowland V. Lee and produced by Benedict Bogeaus and James Nasser. The music was conducted by Werner Janssen. The film was released by United Artists. It has entered the public domain because the producers neglected to renew the copyright in 1972. The film is also Lee's final one before his retirement. The film contains some historically incorrect material, including a London scene showing Tower Bridge - two hundred years before it was built. Kidd's London prisoner crew was removed before it sailed from England and Kidd was forced to find a new crew in New York City. Kidd returned to New York, not to London. In his memories, Nikita Khrushchev noted that this was one of Joseph Stalin's favorite films, who identified with the mischievous captain.
