This gallery honors one of Johnny Depps greatest screen creations, the sly but endearingly sweet Captain Jack Sparrow in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. Released on July 9, 2003, the film earned $654 million worldwide, catapulted Johnny to the top of Hollywoods A-list, and won him a SAG Award and his first Oscar nomination. Captain Jack has captured the imagination and affection of moviegoers of all ages. Whether swordfighting, quaffing rum, flirting outrageously, or plotting yet another way to recover his beloved ship, The Black Pearl, Captain Jack Sparrow always has the keenest mind in any company
and, surprisingly, the kindest heart. When Captain Jack tells Elizabeth Swann, "What the Black Pearl is
is freedom," he could be describing himself as well as his ship. Better than any screen character in recent memory, Captain Jack Sparrowthe best pirate weve ever seenreminds us of the unlimited possibilities and unrealized dreams within each of us.
