Just for fun.  The Crimson Pirate (1952) is good, way over the top, fun with the immortal line: You are on a pirate ship, in pirate waters in a pirate world.  Burt Lancaster in his prime was a master entertainer, joined in his antics by the “mute” Nick Cravat, a good friend of Lancaster, and just as good an acrobat, who often appeared in Lancaster films.  A bygone era when entertaining action films had no nudity and no profanity, and had to rely on clever dialogue, good acting and slapstick comedy.
