•Filmed September 28 - October 28, 1923. 25 shooting dates went into the making of this film. A week after shooting ended for "Big Business" (no. 23), the 'start' date for "The Buccaneers" arrived on Friday, September 28th. Mark Goldaine was credited with directing on every shooting date, but production was divided on October 2nd between this film and "Sunday Calm" (no. 19), which was directed by Clarence Morehouse on that date. No shooting took place on Sep. 30th, Oct. 14th or Oct. 21st, which were all Sundays. However, shooting did take place on Sunday, October 7th. The 'finish' date for "The Buccaneers" was October 24th, after which Robert McGowan immediately began directing "Seein' Things" (no. 25). Goldaine, however, directed retakes for "The Buccaneers" on Sunday, October 28th.
