Errol Flynn and The Sea Hawk

On film, Errol Flynn seems to capture all the best aspects of what is sometimes referred to as "a boyish quality." At his best, there is an exuberance and sense of fun that is irresistible.

And that really comes across in The Sea Hawk. So I wrote a review of it.

It's a wonderful movie; it's a kind of template for every other swashbuckling adventure.

In the past, I never really understood why people made a big deal about Errol Flynn. But as his films come out on DVD and I finally see them, I understand it. (Many of these movies I've actually seen before, but when I was very, very young and so I only vaguely recall them.)
