Fun Featurette on The Sea Hawk

The Sea Hawk: Flynn in Action (2005)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Lincoln Hurst, Rudy Behlmer, Robert Osborne and John Mauceri are interviewed about the production of THE SEA HAWK in this 20-minute featurette. The historians start off by talking about the 1924 silent version and how Warner planned on remaking it after CAPTAIN BLOOD but then Errol Flynn got busy with other projects. We hear about the movie going into production but there was an issue with Flynn not wanting to take the role. We also hear about the casting of Alan Hale and Brenda Marshall and how Olivia de Havilland turned down the female lead. We also get talk about Henry Daniell and how he was able to get the part without even being able to hold a sword. There's some detailed talk about what the director and studio had to do to work around this because of the big sword fight with Flynn. Fans of the film should enjoy this movie as should those who didn't care for the movie. I'm one a few people who didn't care for this classic but this featurette does a very good job at telling what went on with the production and it certainly clear that most really love the final product and consider it one of the best of its kind.
