Trivia: One of Barbossa's pirates has a dreadlocked beard that's always on fire. There is wire with copper sockets in the ends of the dreads, in which they would insert incense to burn for the smoking effect. After every take they would have to reinsert incense and relight his beard. During the sword play, the locks in his beard would flop around, causing it to burn himself or someone else, or even light up the rest of his beard.Super Grover
Trivia: On the day when Keira Knightley had to kiss Orlando Bloom during filming lots of the members of the cast brought their teenage daughters to the set. As Keira and Orlando were kissing all the girls were giving her evil glares so in a Behind the Scenes special, Keira apologized to all the girls who are obsessed with Orlando.
Trivia: Elizabeth falling off the fort was filmed on a set, south of Los Angeles. Jack diving off the ship to rescue her was filmed in the Caribbean, and his actually rescuing Elizabeth was filmed in a tank in Long Beach, California. There are thousands of miles between those three consecutive shots. This is similar circumstances to the scene when Elizabeth is walking the plank and surfacing. Both were shot in the Caribbean, but with a few days in-between shots. On the commentary, Jack Davenport (Norrington) mentions Keira Knightley's (Elizabeth) little-known ability to hold her breath for two days. (00:15:00)Super Grover
Trivia: As the Interceptor is pulling away from the Dauntless, in the wide shot there are still ropes between the two ships. The camera crew were caught off guard, since the sails were full, the Interceptor started pulling away sooner than expected, pulling the ropes taut, ripping off the belaying pins. Johnny Depp (Jack) was hit hard in the knee with one of those pins and knocked him to the ground. It was the only shot the camera crew had of Interceptor actually pulling away. On screen, in the close-up, Will is seen cutting all the lines. Commentary, DVD. (00:47:05)Super Grover
Trivia: In one of the deleted scenes on the DVD where Jack and the pirates are improvising about the French ("The inventors of mayonnaise"), his last line in the clip is "I'll get me coat." This is a reference to "The Fast Show," which featured a guest appearance by Johnny Depp (Jack) in its final show.
Trivia: After we see the Disney ride scene at the jail, where the pirates are trying to get the dog to come near them with a bone, Jack Sparrow says to the pirates "You can keep doing that forever, that dog is never going to move." Besides the obvious visual reference to the ride, the line's relevant too - as in the Disney ride, the pirates *will* keep doing that forever, and the dog *is* never going to move. (00:27:20)BGTerri
Jack Sparrow: Who makes all these?
Will Turner: I do. And I practice with them... Three hours a day.
Jack Sparrow: You need to get yourself a girl, mate. Or perhaps the reason you practice three hours a day is that you've already found one and are otherwise incapable of wooing said strumpet. You're not a eunuch, are you?
