Tell-No-Tales Thursdays: Hairy Legged Pirate
From a vintage publicity shot comes today’s view of the (sometimes) hairylegged pirate and the drunken pirate with piggies, just before you go under the bridge into the scene of fire and pillaging.
Here’s a vintage Viewmaster view of the Hairy Legged Pirate.
In shot #3, maybe he has taken up cycling; or swimming; or plans to compete in a bodybuilding tournament. Who knows. All we know is that the formerly hairy-legged pirate has now gone smooth. Maybe it’s shorts season.
In DVD/Blu-ray news, the next Tinker Bell movie is about to be released on October 27. Before you scoff (as I did), you should really check this out.
I was blown away by not only the fun story and excellent characterization, but also by the visual artistry of this movie. Just amazing. You really must see it to believe it. I would even go see it in a theater on the big screen. It’s that cool. I am sure the new character, Blaze, the firefly, will be popping up soon in parades and merchandise. He’s pretty dang adorable. Check him out in this clip:
Available at Amazon.com.
