James Mason's character of Captain Hughes is a parody of Captain Bligh of "Mutiny of the Bounty". Similary, the Mister Prostitute character (played by Greta Blackburn) is a spoof of Mr. Christian. See more »

Not being an avid fan of the Monty Python gang, I thoroughly enjoy their "on-the-sides", such as the Time Bandits. Yellowbeard can also be classified as such and is, in my opinion, one of the funniest films ever made. The characterisation, the one-liners, the stereotypes, everything fits and hits where it is supposed to. The strange casting is one of the highlights of the film and I'm sure they all had a very good time making it.
Blues Brothers was not a highly regarded film in its early years but has gained some kind of "cult status". Yellowbeard is sure to follow that path.
