      Errol Flynn deserves better than the film Phil has reviewed. I gather that the intention was to make the film in the style of Flynn's most successful movies such as "Robin Hood" and "Captain Blood".

His adroit vocabulary splashes onto mental canvas all the colours of his daring youth. It flies in the face of the tacky smear-job foisted as his autobiography (*My Wicked Wicked Ways* is a fake and a forgery)/5(9).
