Good 1st attempt at this compelling story 17 Oct. 2013
By TaxiDrivin' Daddy - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Most will be familiar with Disney's version of Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh (Walt Disney Treasures) starring Patrick McGoohan, and though this 1937 version isn't as fun to watch (camera work and editing are unimaginative) - it may be a bit more faithful to the original version. Unfortunately, Arliss doesn't don the mask much, but you do get the sense that he is quite capable of being as ruthless as any pirate in many respects. There are no DVD extras, just the 80 minute movie. Such a shame that Arliss isn't better remembered today - a top actor and stage personality in his day.

Dr Syn 14 Mar. 2013
By W. J. Ferguson - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This was a good enjoyable action movie to enjoy. Good story which showed us the basis of the future Scarecrow of Romney Marsh. I enjoyed that one better. And while I am on that I hope that re-release the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh - it is unfair that only a small amount was produced and now to buy one your have to pay a arm & leg to get the dvd.
Come on Disney pullyour finhers out surely it doesnt take that much to re-release the dvd again surely!!!

Great film, just B+ Physical Quality 20 Dec. 2014
By Scott H. Ochiltree - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First rate British film. I would give it four stars, but unfortunately both the video and audio are only up to B+ level. There is a need for a properly restored version of this work.
