Captain Kidd at the Movies
So popular is the legend of Kidd in America that it has been plundered for the big screen numerous times...though sadly, he is yet to appear in a Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Here's a clip from one of his more questionable escapades in which our bold hero goes the way of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Wolfman by tussling with Abbot and Costello...
Charles Laughton, seen here playing Kidd in this film, also played the good Captain in the original, slightly more respectable film, which you can view in its entirety here.
