Vintage Trailer of the Day: Captain Blood (1935)

What kind of man does Errol Flynn play in his debut on screen? The kind of man you like. A man with money.

Not only did this film launch Flynn, it also launched 8 more movies where Flynn and Olivia de Havilland would share romance (and a little swashbuckling). It’s a fantastic example of the genre with big set pieces, great action, and a salty amount of fun.

Oddly enough, it was also the first of 12 films where iconic director Michael Curtiz would work with Flynn, a man he hated (and who hated him right back). Funny how business works out.
