The film was inspired by Keith Moon, drummer of the Brit rock band The Who who was a personal friend of Graham Chapman. Moon wanted to play the Yellowbeard role but could not due to ailing health. (Moon passed away in 1978 about five years before this picture was made and released). Chapman once recalled that Moon lived like a pirate with his wild ways. The character in the movie called Moon played by Peter Boyle was named after him as a tribute. See more »

Father! We thought you were dead.
Us Yellowbeards are never more dangerous than when we're dead. How are you gettin' on pirating?
How many men have you killed so far?
One. Two, I think.
You think? You'll never kill anyone if you go around thinkin'.

Such a great movie , with a killer cast so sadly overlooked! Chapman as Yellowbeard and Cleese as Blind Pew are both highlights of those guys work IMHO. Can't find it on DVD though! Sure it's a silly plot but it's the bit parts of all the different greats that make this one of my favorite Comedys of all time...GREATNESS!Marty Feldman was rarely better and Madeline Kahn. But Blind Pew and Yellowbeard definitely here are both just incredibly amazing parts.I just love this movie and sure hope it does come out on DVD at some point! It's weird in a way though because i do like Cheech and Chong but here i could have done without their efforts entirely..
