Middling Disney a la Dean Jones and Peter Ustinov; OK family fare.

Audience Reviews for Blackbeard's Ghost

Another great pirate themed flick, again from Disney. I love the innocent effects n look compared to today, it's lovely, spookyish, charming and Ustinov is pretty funny too. The highlight is the athletics event and I loved the big spooky looking Inn which the old ladies ran and where Blackbeard haunted.
