Despite the fact that it is Thanksgiving week and I'm packing my bags for the long weekend whilst contemplating my three research papers, I'm going to take a small breather in order to post my weekly movie choice. So, continuing with the count-up:
#4 The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)
Say what you will about men in tights: Errol Flynn pulls them off. I adore Errol Flynn. I think he was a beautiful and wonderful actor. Sadly, my criteria for happy endings drops a considerable amount of his classics out of the spectrum (I've avoided many), so I've really seen few of his films. I think I can just about safely say that his three most classic (and, in my opinion, greatest) films are: Captain Blood (1935), The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), and Sea Hawk (1940) - or maybe those just happen to be the three films directed by Michael Curtiz, with scores by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, relatively similar story lines, and good-looking sidekicks (in other words, the ones with all the proper ingredients to make me like them). But, I want to know your opinion. So, my poll this week is: Which of Mr. Flynn's films do you like best? Or did I overlook your favorite?
I'm still debating whether or not I will post on Thursday. I have lately been posting every Tuesday (the 100 movie list) and Thursday (the different segments). I'm wondering if I should wait a day and post on Friday, get a head start and post tomorrow, or just go ahead and post on Thursday as I may actually have time. Anyway, we'll see. In the chance that I decide to wait until Friday, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all enjoy it!
And, for a Thanksgiving present: bloopers from 1938 (including #4 up above), my favorite part starts at 4:10 Enjoy!
