When a group of crooks want to take over an island and turn it into a casino, kicking senior citizen Elsa Lanchester and friends out of their group home, track and field coach Dean Jones comes to the rescue. Using magical powers, he summons the ghost of legendary pirate Blackbeard (Peter Ustinov) from the grave to put a stop to the creeps' plans. It's a yo-ho-ho hilarious Disney yarn with great special effects and good cheer. With Suzanne Pleshette, and Michael Conrad. 107 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital Surround.
