|This page is dedicated to The Pirate Movie, starring Christopher
Atkins and Kristy McNichol, which was released in 1982. Christopher Atkins, the
cutie-patootie who played "Frederic" in the film, was 20 years old when the
movie was released and still hot from his first starring role in The Blue Lagoon - and one
of my all time favorite "heart throbs" from my teen years!
After searching in vain two years ago for any information on the web about Christopher Atkins, I finally found the Christopher Atkins Dedication Page! This site is linked to pages on many of Chris's films, including A Night in Heaven, The Blue Lagoon, etc. but NOTHING on The Pirate Movie! In looking at the guestbook on the Christopher Atkins Dedication Page, I saw I wasn't the only one who loved The Pirate Movie and that others were looking for pics and info on this great movie! So here it is - ENJOY! E-mail me and let me know what you think of the page and any pics or sounds you'd like to see added. Enjoy!
|From the video release.. "The Pirate Movie is an imaginative blend of the world of Gilbert and Sullivan and today's world of popular music. The timeless operetta THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE is neatly updated to explore the wishes and hopes of a very modern young lady. Mabel (Kristy McNichol), an awkward and shy teenager, fantasizes romance and adventure after meeting Frederic (Christopher Atkins), a debonair young man dressed as a pirate at an exhibit in the amusement park. The movie retains six songs from the original operetta, while a host of new numbers, despite their rock-n-roll beat, manage to stay very much with the spirit of Gilbert and Sullivan."|
