I think it is more likely to be the dead man's treasure chest ; comes from this song: Yo ho ho and a Bottle of Rum
First of all,....to all of you, Happy Newyear and ....
may 2007 bring "a lot of everything and of everything a lot"
"Dead man's Chest" in the title of the movie "The Pirates of the Caribbean" has to be understood as the whole doomed sailer and not just a single coffin ain't it ?
There was chest on chest of Spanish gold
With a ton of plate in the middle hold
I hadn't heard that song before.
I deducted: The only chest a dead man can possess is his own coffin and because there were no coffins to be seen in the movie it had to be the whole ship, that was going to sink, that would act as a coffin
Fun movie, though.
It surely is!
