Errol Flynn

Vintage Trailer Logo

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.



We take a look at the hundred-year history of Robin Hood in film and discover that Sean Connery seems to be the common thread.



A character that has endured 600 years gives us the unique chance to compare films featuring the same figure but are radically different because of the technological limitations of the time.


Errol Flynn kicking ass in Captain Blood.

The film has both the word “Captain” and “Blood” in the title. And it involves pirates. Do I really need to sell you on it much more than that?
