The phrase "they just don't make 'em like this any more" has never been so accurately used as when it describes Captain Blood. A roaring adventure tale from the novel by Rafael Sabatini, Captain Blood is chock full of cannons and swordplay, heroism and treachery, war and romance, a beautiful heroine, and an impossibly handsome hero so lusty and full of vigor that it's difficult to catch your breath as the movie careens from one thrilling scene to the next.
Starring : Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone.
