Blackbeard's Ghost was one of the first Disney productions released after Walt's death. Peter Ustinov stars as the eponymous wraith, who returns to Earth to come to aid of his descendant, elderly Elsa Lanchester. The villains want to kick Lanchester and her friends out of their group home so that they can build a crooked casino. Good guy Dean Jones evokes the spirit of Blackbeard to thwart the bad guys. The supporting cast ranges from Richard Deacon to Gil Lamb, while Peter Ellenshaw performs the visual effects with mattes, miniatures, and process screens. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A yo-ho-wholesome retread of Disney favorites."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"Undeniably silly and somewhat dated, Blackbeard’s Ghost remains harmless, modestly entertaining family fare."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"Middling Disney a la Dean Jones and Peter Ustinov; OK family fare."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Another stupid Disney live-action piece of inane cliches and situations."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Ustinov e Jones fazem uma ótima dupla cômica em um filme que, de forma inocente (até mesmo bobinha), conquista pela despretensão."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
