“Captain Blood” The Pirate Melodrama by Joe Dickinson. Pirates are back in style! So here are some more for you – but none of your modern sissy-pirates – our old-fashioned pirates are unafraid of such fearsome weapons as flintlocks, cutlasses, and popcorn. Welcome to the adventures of the most bumbling bunch of buccaneers that ever buckled a swash. Another of the Pocket’s infamous popcorn-tossing comedy-spoofs.
