THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (1938) – Winner of 3 Academy Awards* – Dashing Errol Flynn triumphs in this lavish version of the Robin Hood saga. Olivia de Havilland (as Maid Marian), supreme villains Basil Rathbone and Claude Rains and a boisterous who’s who of character actors co-star. Welcome to Sherwood!
CAPTAIN BLOOD (1935) Flynn skyrocketed to stardom as a 17th-century physician turned pirate after escaping unjust political imprisonment. Radiant Olivia de Havilland co-stars in the first of their eight films together. Michael Curtiz directs.
THE SEA HAWK (1940) Cannons thunder, blades clatter and Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s dyamic music swirls as Flynn plays a seagoing rogue who commandeers a 40-gun galleon, endures captivity, then boldly escapes to warn England of Spain’s armada.
ADVENTURES OF DON JUAN (1948) – Academy Award* Winner – In this later-career swashbuckler, Flynn is a warmer, wittier version of his earlier characters as he rescues the Spanish queen (Viveca Lindfors) from the snares of an evil duke.
