Excellent but short featurette on one of Flynn's greatest roles!
21 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I totally enjoyed watching this featurette. It's a cut above much of the same sort of thing you find in DVD packages these days. The commentators, especially Hurst, Behlmer and Osborne, speak with obvious affection, and great authority, about Flynn and the film, and they make you not only want to watch it, but to savor it. I was especially glad to see that they talked at some depth about Max Steiner's superb music, and about the wonderful tune "Garry Owen," which underscores much of the action. I thought Hurst did a good job in particular of emphasizing how Flynn's character evolves during the film from a lightweight comedic personality into a complex man with a conscience. It's rightly pointed out that the film abounds in historical inaccuracies, but nonetheless remains one of Flynn's best performances, and one of the finest adventure films of the 1940s. The final poignant scene between Flynn and de Havilland, the last they would ever film together, is also explored at length by Hurst and Osborne, in a way almost too touching for words. The whole thing ends abruptly - and on a sad, even ominous note - as it sinks in to the viewer how much filmgoers would lose with the passing of the wonderful Flynn/de Havilland pairing once this film was completed. Overall, a magnificent featurette - albeit too short - and highly recommended.
