Audience Reviews for Blackbeard's Ghost

    One of my favourite Disney live action films when I was growing up. Ustinov is brilliant as the title character and is obviously enjoying himself. He makes a good foil to Jones' straight man (although I found the latter's constant shouting a little irritating watching it now) and their Athletic scene is brilliant (Disney would pretty much recreate it a few years later in 'The Strongest Man in the World'). Jones is a great physical comedian (Disney always said that he was the best actor at acting with no-one) and him and Pleshette make a good couple. I reckon kids today would still enjoy this film.

    A good-hearted and jolly romp that is great for kids and adults in case you fancy balming your achy soul with some old school Disney famly film love. A great mixture of spookiness, pirates and dear old ladies makes this great fun and a forgotten classics. Ustinov does a great job and you can tell that he has lots of fun playing the role. It is always a pleasure to see the eerie queen Elsa Lancaster talking about curses and ghosts, a true inside joke for film fans. Dean Jones is a tad colourless but then again, so many leading men in Disney films are. Good one.
