After serving two decades in prison, Yellowbeard (Graham Chapman) breaks out determined to recover the treasure that he buried so long ago, alongside his son, old crew, and the British Navy.
The three tall ships seen in this movie were a British merchant ship, a French frigate, and a Spanish barque. All three vessels were played by the same one hundred twenty-foot replica of the "H.M.S. Bounty" vessel, "Bounty II", which had originally been built in 1960 for MGM's Mutiny on the Bounty (1962). The pirate ship in this movie was called "Edith", it being named after Graham Chapman's mother.
It's about your father.
Dan: What about him?
Betty: When I said he was dead, I was only trying to cushion the blow.
When Dan embraces Yellowbeard and accidentally stabs him, the hilt of the dagger changes between shots.
Toward the end of the credits there is a dedication to Marty Feldman (who died during the filming) that simply states "For Marty"
