Wish Turner colorized this one
23 January 2003 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

I think this is a great movie. I am a big fan of Errol Flynn (in early adult years, he was my idol) and Ann Sheridan, the "Ooomph Girl, just makes me weak, so it's hard for me to find fault. Those familiar with Flynn's career will note that this is a departure from his performances up to that point. Some say this was his warmup for "That Forsythe Woman". Thomas Mitchell is excellent, and I find Flynn's acting superb. An underappreciated movie
