Another movie proving how awesome Dean Jones is. A lot of the scenes are very funny.

Peter Ustinov shines as the surly, sometimes unlikable, but always comical Blackbeard. Great family movie, especially if you have pirate lovers in your house.

Amazing movie from the Golden Age of Disney. Reminds me of curling up on Sunday nights with Popcorn and family, back when movies were for everyone, none of the bawdy jokes. Loved every minute!

Good family yarn. We all enjoyed this one, especially by contrast to some of the features Disney is trying to sell nowadays.

Loved this movie! Peter Ustinov as the pirate is really amusing and something that kids (and adults) would enjoy.

Disney will rip off the sub plot for this film for years to come: bad-guy threatens to foreclose on mortgage, until the FILL IN THE BLANK comes up with the money to save the day. Suzanne Pleshette is ravishing.
