Pic of the Day: “The Boy and the Pirates”

In honor of Turner Classic Movies’ upcoming showing of Bert I. Gordon’s The Boy and the Pirates (1960), today’s pic (click to embiggen) comes from that very film. Tim will make you forget all about Capt. Jack Sparrow, believe me. Best. Pirate. Ever. It’s also a treat to see Tim’s Paths of Glory co-star, the great Joseph Turkel, in this film as well, but unfortunately they have no scenes together. From Stanley Kubrick to Bert I. Gordon – wow.  Talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous… (No offense, Bert.)

What’s that you say? Tim’s shirt is open? Why, I hadn’t noticed.
