A good way to start Saturday!

I got up this morning and was flicking through the channels, which I came across the Showtime Greats channel, and they were showing The Pirate King. At first, I was a little surprised, but youknow I have fun memories of that movie so I watched it again! My goodness, it's so bad it is great!

The strange thing was I was looking at the actors thinking my goodness there are a lot of Aussies in this movie. Then I was looking at the mansion that Mabel's family lived in, and I was thinking I KNOW that house! Turns out that the movie was filmed entirely on location in Australia, and the mansion used for filming was Werribee Mansion, which is five minutes away from where I live!

Of course then I ended up at Youtube seeing what I could find there! Turns out you can watch most of the movie there, but I thought I was post just one example of how this movie is so bad that it is good!

This was a good way to start Saturday!


  1. okay, yah, umm well,yah that is interesting isn't it?

  2. Well, still never heard of this before, but that was an entertaining clip!

  3. O my gosh. My sister, brother, and I grew up watching and LOVING this movie. is so bad that it's good. I think we had randomly checked it out from the video store back in the day and it just became a favorite. Everyone who we've made watch it thinks we're crazy, but we still love it. Too funny :)
