Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Jack Sparrow just got way cooler.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
I’ve wondered about this scene for absolutely ages. I could never find anything that explained the connection between Beckett and Jack, but now I get it. Wow! Captain Jack Sparrow just got a whole lot better.
Captain Jack Sparrow is probably one of the best fictional men around and all anyone remembers about him is that he’s insane and that he’s a bit of a womanizer.
Nope. I would track him across the globe to marry him.
Im sorry if this is the Torchwood Cast + The Doctor having a sleep over I might actually scream.
That is EXACTLY what this is I don’t care what anyone says you can’t destroy my dreams.
According to John Barrowman’s autobiography this is the time torchwood was first broadcast, they all watched it together
Can we talk about this GIF please? Can we talk about how the Doctor isn’t even looking at River when he grabs her hand. He doesn’t have time; He just grabs a hold of his wife’s hand and he’s pulling her away from the Weeping Angels. He grabbed her hand several times in this episode. He kissed her cheek in their first scene together. He healed her broken hand using his own regeneration powers. Personally a part of me wondered if the Doctor had married River to make her happy, but after seeing this episode I knew that wasn’t true. He married her because he wanted to keep her safe with him for the rest of her life. He kept grabbing her hand to keep her by his side, because he’s different now without her. He married her because even though he tries constantly to keep her safe, he knows he’s not safe without her. He married River because he needs her.
I never get tired of this photo.
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
are we not going to discuss where his gloves went
