Although its purpose in 1936 was to raise a spirit of military self-sacrific in America's young men prior to WWII; this film is still one of both Errol Flynn's, and Hollywood's all time greats! Despite the historical inaccuracies; Union Jacks flying proudly upside down for example, the films basic themes have undoubtedly stood the test of time. Brotherly love strained by a beautiful woman. Cowardly treacherous behaviour ultimately avenged by a thundering cavalry charge of the Empire's gallant soldiery. Noble Commander's protecting a fallen hero's good name; this film has it all and more! Full of understated emotions, dignity, courage, loyalty and honour plus a large dash of decency, they simply don't make films like this anymore! On a graver note, if they ever start too, perhaps we should all begin to take a deeper interest in world events, but until then; ENJOY IT!!!!! IT'S A CRACKER.
