Blackbeard's Ghost

Time Out says

A typically larky Disney film, heavily over-directed and under-written, in which the ghost of a fearsome pirate is summoned from limbo (where he is condemned to wander until he manages to do one good deed). His task is to save a bevy of poor old ladies - his proud descendants, collectively known as the Daughters of Blackbeard, and running an inn dedicated to his memory - from eviction by developers who have a gambling-joint in mind. Ustinov has his moments as the ghostly pirate, but seems to have got bogged down in an imitation of Peter Cook's inimitably peculiar Cockney whine - which Peter Cook does so much better.
