One of the best adventure films
on 9 July 2017
By the time this film was made Errol Flynn had found his trademark style as one of the greatest ever purveyors of charm - I won't say the greatest as a number of others could be equally charming (Colman, Power, Niven to name but three) - and he carries this adventure romp from beginning to end with all the qualities of a true Hollywood star. Medieval romances of this kind fall uncomfortably between the established stools of 'sword and sandals' and 'swashbuckler' and it's true this film has elements of both - but it's none the worse for that and it is in fact what it always has been - one of the best adventure films ever made - solid gold entertainment - and after eighty years that's quite something.
