The three tall ships seen in the picture were a British merchant ship, a French frigate and a Spanish barque. All three vessels were played by the same 120-foot replica of the "HMS Bounty" vessel, "Bounty II", which had originally been built in 1960 for MGM's remake Mutiny on the Bounty (1962). The pirate ship in the film was called "Edith", it being named after Graham Chapman's mother. See more »
When Dan embraces Yellowbeard and accidentally stabs him, the hilt of the dagger changes between shots. See more »
When little Dan was two minutes old I tattooed it on his head.
Does he know about this?
Oh, no no no, that's why I kept him in the cupboard for three years. That may be why he's a bit odd with all these books, and reading, and stuff like that.

Yellowbeard is a rousing comedy about a pirate called Yellow beard who is searching for his treasure.
The cast is a who's who of British comedy icons, along with Cheech and Chong of America.
The writing is very much like the style of Monty Python. Many of Python's member's are in it. Not least of which is Graham Chapman in the starring role as Yellowbeard. Eric Idle and John Cleese also play roles. If you look hard you can see David Bowie in a bit role. Cheech and Chong have quite amusing sequences. As does Marty Feldman, and one of the best Madeleine Khan.
Hard to find....see it if you can.
