Purchased on Mighty Ape

Never knew I could sigh and swoon so much over (mostly) black and white movies! Great epic adventures, sword fights, intrigue and romance, superb casts and a short documentary on each film plus shorts and newsreels from the period. Thoroughly excellent collection (if only it included Robin Hood!) and a great buy.

CAPTAIN BLOOD (1935): (B&W) Errol Flynn shot to stardom as Peter Blood, a 17th-century physician who turned pirate after escaping unjust political imprisonment. It was a role the handsome, sea-loving Tasmanian was born to play, and he shaped it into Hollywood's ar­chetypal image of the adventurous hero. That he also became a romantic idol and a vision of gallantry in love is due in large part to his ideally cast co-star: radiant Olivia de Havilland in the first of their eight films together.
Directed with panache by Michael Curtiz, scored with flair by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and featuring Basil Rathbone and Lionel Atwill as villains to remember, Captain Blood becomes a ride on the high seas of unparalleled enjoyment.

THE PRIVATE LIVES OF ELIZABETH AND ESSEX (1939): (Col) Bette Davis and Errol Flynn made The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex fascinatingly public, striking sparks in this lavish Technicolor tale of the ill-fated love between the aging Elizabeth I and the dashing Earl of Essex. Thoroughly unglamorous hair eyebrows and hairline shaved, face painted chalky white face double Academy Award winner Davis exudes such intelligence, energy and ardour that her romance with the decades-younger Essex (Flynn at the peak of his remarkable good looks and athletic verve) is completely believable. Based on Maxwell Andersons play Elizabeth the Queen and directed by Michael Curtiz, the film was nominated for five Oscars (Best Art Direction, Colour Cinematography, Scoring, Sound Recording and Special Effects). Stars: Errol Flynn, Bette Davis, Donald Crisp, Alan Hale, Vincent Price.

THE SEA HAWK (1940): (B&W) Cannons thunder, blades clatter and Erich Wolfgang Korngold's in­comparable music swirls and flourishes in The Sea Hawk. In one of his best roles, Errol Flynn plays Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe, who commandeers a 40-gun galleon, endures captivity, and then boldly escapes to warn England of Spain's armada. Working on his 10th of 12 movies with Flynn, Michael Curtiz masterfully directs the film's blend of royal intrigue and derring-do heroics made on a then-lavish $1.7-million scale that included construction of two full-sized ships. The film was stirringly topical in its day. When Queen Elizabeth (Flora Robson) exhorts her country to maintain fighting readiness against tyranny now and forever, audiences knew forever had come: Hitler had launched his World War II air siege of England. Stars: Errol Flynn, Brenda Marshall, Claude Rains, Donald Crisp, Alan Hale.

THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON (1941): (B&W) The 7th Cavalry Regiment, Gen. George Armstrong Custer says, rides to hell or to glory. It depends on one's point of view. The point of view of Raoul Walsh's spectacular They Died with Their Boots On decidedly favours glory. Errol Flynn portrays the famed cavalryman in this hoof-and-thunder chronicle tracing his career from dandyish West Point plebe to Civil War hero to frontier legend immortalized by the Battle of Little Big Horn. Olivia de Havilland, sharing the marquee with Flynn for the eighth and final time, plays Custer's devoted wife Libby. And composer Max Steiner's stirring music trumpets gallantry and sacrifice. Stars: Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Arthur Kennedy, Charley Grapewin, Gene Lockhart, Anthony Quinn.

DODGE CITY (1939): (Col) Where cattle drives end, trouble begins. Thirsty, trigger-happy cowmen pour into Dodge City, where might too often makes right. There ought to be a law in this corrupt, bullet-riddled town. In his first of eight Westerns, Flynn is as able with a six-shooter as he was with a swashbuckler's swor­d. He confronts lynch mobs, slams outlaws into jail and escapes (along with co-star Olivia de Havilland) a fiery, locked rail road car. Hailed for Flynns sagebrush debut, its vivid Technicolor look and spectacular saloon brawl that may have employed every available stunt person in Hollywood, Dodge City later gained another distinction when it inspired Mel Brooks cowboy parody Blazing Saddles. Stars: Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Ann Sheridan, Bruce Cabot, Alan Hale.

THE ADVENTURES OF ERROL FLYNN (2005) (Col & B&W) Real to Reel: A Hollywood legends life of action, romance and drama. Definitive new documentary! The man, the movies, the mayhem. Including new interviews with frequent co-star De Havilland. Narrated by Ian Holm.
