Silly and a little overlong, but thanks to a stellar Peter Ustinov it is a very enjoyable film
While silly and over-the-top at times, this film is a lot of fun. My
main problem though with "Blackbeard's Ghost" though is that it is tad
too long by 10 minutes. But it is hugely enjoyable entertainment for
the whole family, with some nice costumes and cinematography. Also a
vast majority of the jokes are very funny, the intriguing plot is along
the lines of "The Canterville Ghost" and the performances are spirited.
Peter Ustinov, a great actor, makes a very lively lead who is condemned
to wander in limbo until he performs a good deed, and Dean Jones also
does a good job. Elsa Lanchester almost steals the film though, as one
of the ladies he must save from gambling gangsters. Overall, while not
perfect, it is enjoyable and worth watching. 7/10 Bethany Cox.

Yo Ho Ho and a Disney Bottle of Fun
'The Ends Justify the Means', is the great moralistic virtue that this
Disney tale weaves. The means of this Disney film is to justify plot
elements to create opportunities for wacky moments. Such as when Disney
Veteran Dean Jones is cornered by some bad goons, he points his finger
into gun and says 'Bang'. And the goons start to fall over. They then
try to knock his fingers out of the gun position. Of course when Dean
fires his imaginary gun, it is Blackbeard's ghost who is knocking the
bad guys over.
Dean Jones makes any movie he is in, a lot of fun. For some reason the
DVD copy I had, had a bad transfer. Maybe it was the TV. Overall
despite the negatives, it was a fairly fun film. It was not as good as
some Disney films, but better then others. If your into Disney films,
it may be worth checking out..
