Keith Moon originally wanted to play the pirate character during the film's early genesis. Adam Ant was then originally slated to be in the cast but had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts, reportedly he quit due to losing patience with delays in production. In the end, Graham Chapman played the lead pirate character of 'Yellowbeard'. See more »

A comedic romp featuring many of the old cast from Monty Python. in addition, Peter Cook of Beyond The Fringe fame. The film is not for the serious. A farce about a pirate and his treasure with his former first mate and the British Empire seeking to relieve him of it. Peter Cook steals the show with a fine portrayal of a clueless boozer who has a good heart and tries it really hard. I've been trying forever to find the film on DVD without success. Marty Feldman also has a fine role in the moviea and Cheech and Chong appear in secondary roles with humorous results. Graham Chapman stars as the title character with Eric Idle playing the Queen's representative from the Royal Navy.
