Pirates of all shapes and sizes bounded off the Clipper City tall ship yesterday, dressed in black hats and pirate garb, pistols at the ready, for their annual invasion of Fells Point. Greeting them was Vince Zegowitz, a 64-year-old retired oceanographer whose ruddy face attested to his 30 years at sea. He roamed the wharf with his family, dressed in loose black pants, black construction boots, a flowing white blouse, black vest and black bandana. "I feel like Johnny Depp in drag - because these are all women's clothes," he said jokingly.

One of the more impressive things about the 1938 ''Adventures of Robin Hood'' is its pacing. It is measured and fast. There is hardly a frame of film wasted in the movie, one that starred Errol Flynn as the bandit of Sherwood Forest.The 53-year old classic is currently showing at the Senator Theatre. The other Robin Hood, of course, starring Kevin Costner, opened at area theaters last Friday.Two men directed the 1938 film, Michael Curtiz and William Keighley. The supporting cast included Olivia De Havilland as Maid Marian, the titled lady who fell in love with Robin of Locksley.

It's the height of politeness: Salute before you skewer. That was a guiding philosophy for the 370 fencers from the Baltimore and Washington area who gathered at the University of Maryland, College Park this past weekend for the annual Cherry Blossom Open. The event is one of the largest on the East Coast for amateurs, who have the chance to duel with some of the top fencers in the sport and get a taste for what a national event feels like without paying hefty entrance fees. Competitive fencers use the annual gathering as a warm-up for a national competition each spring that will be held this year in Tucson, Ariz.

Because of a production error, the number of stars Sun Film Critic Stephen Hunter awarded to "Cutthroat Island," starring Geena Davis, was misrepresented in yesterday's Today section. The correct evaluation is 2 1/2 stars.* The Sun regrets the error.For sheer idiot bliss, no better vehicle can be found than "Cutthroat Island." It hasn't a brain in its pretty head, but it offers some of the best stunt and pyrotechnic work of the season, plus it features a lot of big ships, some of which blow up. You want more?

THIS IS THE golden anniversary of a particularly golden year in the golden age of television. In 1954, the number of TV stations in the United States more than doubled, advertising revenue surpassed radio revenue for the first time, and Swanson introduced the TV dinner. NBC telecast the Tournament of Roses Parade, for the first time in color. ABC broadcast the Army-McCarthy hearings live. And on CBS, the crusading Edward R. Murrow dissected Joe McCarthy in historic telecasts that turned public opinion against the Commie-hunting senator.

THE STORY of two young Howard County men killed in a brawl while vacationing in Florida seems unbelievable.At least, the way it ended does. Events leading up to the tragedy, though, are all too familiar.Some of us who may not be so young anymore remember what it was like to think that you could whip the world.There are memories of the fellows you would hang out with in high school, in college or after you got that first real job. You remember the places you would go after school, after work -- strange neighborhoods, unfamiliar bars, uncharted territory -- looking for a good time, not trouble, but daring trouble to get in the way.Like Errol FlynnYou felt like those characters in the Errol Flynn movies: Robin Hood and the gang, Captain Blood and his posse, Captain Hawke and the crew.

Of all the magical folkloric stories that used to be part of growing up, none has a more intense appeal than the saga of Robin Hood. Just thinking of it can make all those grown-up children who devoured the storybook retellings - and drank in the wonders of Douglas Fairbanks' 1922 spectacle or Errol Flynn's 1938 swashbuckler - feel refreshed and rejuvenated. The noble outlaw who fights for the commoners of England while King Richard the Lion-Hearted gets mired in the Crusades, Robin Hood embodies youthful idealism in action.
