"Whenever Will had any spare time, he would always track down the stunties to rehearse one of the film’s fight sequenes — such as the epic swordfight with Miraz, one of the film’s climactic scenes, which required more time than Will anticipated to learn the 115 beat swordplay."

Anne Bonny 1702- 1782
Anne Bonny is one of the most notorious pirates in recorded history. She was born in Ireland but moved to America when her father was disgraced. She was tough and a rebel even before her days on the high sea. Legend says she stabbed one of her father’s maids, beat a man who attempted to rape her and put him in the hospital and publicly stripped her fencing instructor with her sword.
At sixteen Anne fell in love with a poor man named James Bonny and insisted on marrying him despite her father’s objections. She did and her father disowned her. She moved with James to New Providence where her husband worked capturing pirates. Anne thought this was exceptionally lame and left him for a pirate named Calico Jack.
Anne was an excellent pirate. She did not hide her gender from her crew mates, but when attacking ships she dressed like a man and kicked ass like a woman. While on the high seas, Anne developed a friendship with fellow woman pirate, Mary Read. Some accounts report the two were lovers.
One night, when Calico Jack’s crew was wasted, some privateers captured his ship. The crew was so drunk, none fought back but Bonny and Read. All the pirates were brought to trial and sentenced to execution. Bonny avoided this fate by revealing she was pregnant. Even after giving birth, her execution was delayed and eventually her paper trail ends. She was probably saved by her father who had influence over the courts, but there is no recorded evidence of her fate.

Can we also mention one of the most beautiful burns ever delivered? Calico Jack hid belowdecks during the fighting (while his fucking babymomma and her girlfriend were up there kicking ass) and it’s said that before she left the jail she stopped by Jack’s prison cell. He begged her to put in a good word for him and she said, “Jack, if you had but fought like a man you would not now be about to die like a dog.”
Then she strolled the fuck out and left him to rot.
