  • Overview
  • Details
In this Disney family favorite, Peter Ustinov, Dean Jones and a perky Suzanne Pleshette deliver plenty of laughs. A college track coach is desperate when he faces off against a group of racketeers who plan to turn his house into a casino. Out of options, he calls upon his ancestor, the great pirate Blackbeard, to defeat the motley crew of criminals. The film's special effects were groundbreaking for its time. Robert Stevenson directs.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie uses a well-worn formula recycled from some of Disney's better pictures, notably The Absent Minded Professor. But if you don't mind the retread -- and kids will love it -- the characters are charming and there are funny bits. As a ghost, Blackbeard is about as frightening as Casper with a sword. Don't let the word "ghost" deter grade-school kids. Old Blackbeard isn't very scary or threatening, but he does on occasion set an improper example by drinking, carousing, and cheating. The allure of pirates and the wholesomeness of Disney are a good pairing for preteens and older kids. As far as adult entertainment goes, it's passable, but works best in the company of young ones.
