"One of the titles in this DVD box set is based on a Jack London story, and some of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" characters figure quite prominently here, as well. There's lots of high seas adventure in THE ULTIMATE PIRATES COLLECTION, including fourteen half-hour installments of the very first TV series made in Australia. ULTIMATE PIRATES gets a well-deserved 'G' rating (for 'G'reat fun). Or maybe this one should be rated "Arrrrrrr!"

The following alphabetized list includes 1 to 10 poll numbers maintained at a film resource website, country of origin (if other than USA), years of release for each movie plus principal actors.

The Adventures of Long John Silver (starring Robert Newton).
This was filmed in Australia in 1955-56, for export to the USA, where it aired a year later. "Long John Silver" eventually was screened in Australia starting in 1958. Series star Robert Newton died after only 26 episodes were completed thus bringing the show to its end.

The Ultimate Pirate Collection is a winner!

"The Ultimate Pirate Collection is not only a great collection of exciting sea-faring adventure movies, it is a study of the evolution of movies as they transformed themselves from silent to sound. Movie buffs will be fasinated with the production techniques used to craft these old films. They also deal with very interesting social and political situations that are very intersting to history buffs. Being both a history buff and a movie buff myself, I could not be happier with this collection. It's the best $8.47 I have spent for a long time.

Ultimate Pirate Collection which some seemed not so piratey

"It all came to me in one piece and the clarity was as good as one could get on a few of them that where extremely old.My husband is enjoying them.Seems like a good mix..I would recommend it to anyone that is a die-hard pirate fan if they dont mind some real oldies in here,like back in the 30's..a couple of movies though I questioned with they where in the category of pirates,though they where high seas adventure stories.It was worth the money."
