5.0 out of 5 stars one of errol's greatest!! 12 Nov 2012
this was one of the last great movies that errol flynn made, not to mention the fact that here was a role he was born to play. he makes the character and real-life boxer james j. corbett believable and exciting(when was errol not exciting?). he plays the boxer with such gusto, charm, wit and seemingly endless energy.
the fact that all nearly all of this film was shot on the studio backlots doesn't hinder the production in any way: the film has a good script, marvellous direction from raoul walsh, a pace with a bit of zip to it and fine performances from errol flynn, ward bond as the reigning champion john l. sullivan, alan hale as the elder corbett and jack carson as flynn's comic friend.
the boxing scenes are well-handled, including the final one. incidentally, it was during the filming of the climatic fight scene when flynn suffered a heart attack and which in turn, delayed filming for about a week or so. however, when i see the final results, i can't spot there being anything wrong with flynn's physical condition. as this is a period film with an 1890s setting, the sets, costumes, props amongst other things, look authentic and convincing.
the very last scene between errol flynn and ward bond is both a moving and well-written piece which helps to finish the film nicely.
i enjoyed listening to the radio production of "gentleman jim" on the special features but at a running time of barely an hour, it would be silly to compare it to the film.
this is errol flynn at his best and fans of his won't want to miss this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Knockout entertainment! 7 Jun 2007
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Gentleman Jim is another case of print the legend, with Errol Flynn playing the legendary boxer as a brash but charismatic social climber in a rollicking entertainment that barely stops for breath. It's as pointless looking for historical accuracy here as it is in Flynn's The Charge of the Light Brigade - this is sheer hokum with all the stops pulled out, filmed on a surprisingly lavish scale and given a real sense of energy by Raoul Walsh's vivid direction. Flynn is still at the height of his powers (you'd never guess he suffered a mild heart attack during the production), with Alexis Smith a beautiful romantic sparring partner and perpetual sidekick Alan Hale along for good measure, this time as Flynn's father (Jack Carson takes sidekick duties this time). Indeed, even the pirate galleon from Flynn's earlier movies makes a somewhat out-of-place cameo in a dockside bout! The 103 minutes just breeze by.

Warners' Region 1 NTSC DVD boasts a fine black and white transfer with a good selection of extras - a radio adaptation, original trailer, cartoon Foney Fables and two sports shorts (one featuring Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman!).

It is fine thank you, except I thought I would be able to delete the Spanish subtitles. How do you do that?
