Sailors dressed up as Pirates?

In that movie “Up Periscope” there was a scene where they did this I think?

Interesting photo it is most likely from a shellback ceremony (line crossing ceremony) from my understanding the Navy does them when sailors cross the equator or international date line for the first time. If you google (pollywog or shellback or line crossing ceremony) their is quite a bit on the history of them and they even do certificates that would will find on eBay sometimes. All in all a neat tradition.
