Robert Stevenson directs Peter Ustinov in the comedy Blackbeard's Ghost, which comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, making it difficult to recommend this Disney/Buena Vista release to anyone who is not already a fan of the film. There is little here to interest the average DVD consumer.

Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette are great together as they team up to save a historic landmark. Peter Ustinov, as Blackbeard himself, is hillariously funny. This is a great family film (nothing scary about Ustinov's ghost) that all ages will enjoy.
