Storyline

O'Flynn, soldier of fortune, returns to Ireland during the Napoleonic wars just in time to save Lady Benedetta from robbers. But they pursue her to ruinous Castle O'Flynn, after secret papers she carries which would reveal Napoleon's plans to invade Ireland. The Napoleonic agents (and British traitors) will stop at nothing to gain their ends, but the swashbuckling exploits of the O'Flynn may be a match for them all Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Lively period swashbuckler
13 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Douglas Fairbanks Junior plays the title role in this Napoleonic era swashbuckler .He is newly returned from the wars against that cantankerous and objectionable Corsican midget ,Buonaparte,and looks forward to revisiting his old haunts in Ireland but is caught up in a plot by the villainous Viceregent ,Lord Sedgemouth (Richard Greene -for once cast as a baddie ,and doing a decent job of it too) .That is not the whole extent of Sedgemouth's depravity however for not only does he wish to facilitate a French invasion of Ireland where the French armies would be joined by Irish rebels but he has set his cap at the fair Lady Bernadetta (the winsome ,is slightly wan Helana Carter) O'Flynn's childhood sweetheart. Much derring do ensues-swords clash and there are secret trysts and much lively if a tad broad,comedy etc.is stirred into the mix Fairbanks seems to be gently and affectionately guying the genre and actors like his father and Errol Flynn are gently satirised -it is worth noting that he also had a hand in the screenplay ,along with Robert Thoeren .

Colour would have been a help as would livelier direction by Arthu Pierson .Notwithstanding,this is a nice fun little movie and most people who catch it would probably enjoy the experience
