The whole Talk Like a Pirate day thing set me thinking about one of my favourite films EVER, which you can't get on DVD.
It's called Devil's Treasure, is a version of Treasure Island, stars Charlton Heston as Long John Silver, Christian Bale (as a child!) as Jim, and has a host of superb character actors in the supporting roles. Christopher Lee steps up as Blind Pugh (sp?) for example.
Paddy whatsit from the Chieftans did the music, it was shot in all sorts of glorious locations, the stunts are brilliant, the acting is excellent and it follows the book faithfully.
It's the best pirate* film you'll ever see, and our video copy is all but worn out.
I've searched for years to find it on DVD but no luck. I believe there are contractual issues between various studios/copyright owners/whatever that prevent it being re-released. And it's a crying shame.
*i.e Film about pirates, rather than stolen copyrighted material
