Blackbeard, the Pirate
The following weapons were used in the film Blackbeard, the Pirate:
The Flintlock Pistol is the most popular firearm in the film. Edward Teach aka Blackbeard (Robert Newton) carries two Flintlock Pistols and fires them many times. Ben Worley (William Bendix), Gilly (Skelton Knaggs), Jubal (Keith McConnell), Sorrel (Sol Gorss) as well as pirates (Leo Abbey), (George Bruggeman), (Cecil Combs), (Rus Conklin), (Taylor Flaniken), (Al Haskell), (Chester Hayes), (Tom Humphries), (Stubby Kruger), (Bob Morgan), (Peter Ortiz), (Jack Perry), (Cap Somers), (Pat Valentino) and (Terry Wilson) also use flintlock pistols. Edwina Mansfield (Linda Darnell) and Robert Maynard (Keith Andes) fire flintlock pistols several times. Sir Henry Morgan (Torin Thatcher) carries a flintlock pistol on his belt, but never fires it.
Brown Bess Flintlock Musket
British soldiers (two of whom are played by Don House and Chuck Roberson) fire Brown Bess Flintlock Muskets in one scene. The movie's plot involves several historical figures with non-overlapping lifespans and periods of activity, but the Brown Bess is anachronistic for nearly all of them, including Blackbeard himself.
Swivel cannon can be seen on Sir Henry Morgan's (Torin Thatcher) ship.
Nearly all ships are equipped with smoothbore muzzleloader cannons. Several cannons can be seen in the fortress and pirates' base.
