Greatest Classic Films: Errol Flynn
The Adventures Of Robin Hood
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!
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
Cannons thunder, blades clatter and Erich Wolfgang Korngold's dynamic 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.
The Adventures Of Don Juan
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.
