Gardiner's Island, traditional repository of Capt. Kidd's treasure, is not, as shown in this movie, in the Bahamas, but on the east end of Long Island, in the present state of New York. And Blackbeard's last battle and death didn't occur in the tropics, but off the coast of North Carolina. See more »

Remake of Captain Blood 1935
10 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't realize until caught "Captain Blood" on TCM last night and found myself listening to the same exact lines. I thought to myself..I swear I saw this moving before in color;then I realized when I researched on IMDb that it was Black Beard I watched. I was disappointed that IMDb didn't point out it was a remake of Captain Blood. The writer's for Black Beard didn't go far for lines they literally took lines from the classic original "Captain Blood". Watch Captain Blood. What is wrong with this world. No imagination at all. Every movie you watch these days is a remake of an original. Sometimes that remake it over and over again. We really need to start giving credit where credit is due. Especially when these movies are being nominated for awards and the writers are copying them.
