Blackie the Pirate is a ctional character created by the Italian writer Emilio Salgari. The character has appeared in various lms throughout the years such as in a silent lm directed by Vitale Di Stefano in 1920; in a lm directed by Amleto Palermi in 1937 with music by Alessandro Cicognini; and in a version directed by Sergio Sollima in 1976 where Blackie was played by the popular star Kabir Bedi, with music by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis.
The composer Gino Peguri (author of soundtracks for movies like "Bloody Pit of Horror,""Seven Magni cent Pistols", "A Woman on Fire", "Psychopath,""Code Name, Red Roses") wrote an orchestral score for "Blackie the Pirate" which was released in 1971 on a rare LP from RCA (SP 8035) and a rare single Cormorano (ZC 50180).
