What this documentary does is emphasize the fact that Errol Flynn and his frequent co-star Olivia de Havilland both came along at the right time--both clicked immediately with audiences--and both became permanent fixtures of the romantic swashbuckler/western type of adventure film for which Flynn was famous.
Both are treated with insightful reflections on their persona by Robert Osborne, Rudy Behlmer and Bob Thomas, who offer some superb commentary while showing clips from the film that made Flynn and de Havilland such popular co-stars.
And, of course, the great Erich Wolfgang Korngold score gets mentioned with full appreciation for its contribution to the success of CAPTAIN BLOOD.
Trivia: Interesting that both de Havilland and Flynn were not the first choices for their roles--others were considered and then dropped.
