Jim walks us through the history of Pirates of the Caribbean, first as the 1968 release Blackbeard’s Ghost (with Peter Ustinov), then as an attraction at Disneyland. Jim points out that even in the 1960’s, the attraction was borrowing scenes from the movie. Fast forward to the Pirates franchise movie franchise today, and you see a cycle where the movie borrows from the rides, then the rides borrow from the movie, and the cycle repeats with every sequel.
