Zorro and Don Juan - A Great Swashbuckling Double Bill


Recommended Posts

Yes, she moved on with marriage to another man and moved to Paris, where she still resides in a townhouse.

 

She was actually married twice. Her first husband was an abuser, Marcus Goodrich, a novelist. In court she claimed he was brutal and left her with bruises she had to cover with scarves.

 

I remember when she married the French editor of Paris Match, and moved to Paris. She wrote a marvelous book about her life there, which I still remember parts of ... I remember thinking she was quite a good writer, on the wryly funny side. She divorced her husband some years later, but raised her children there because she felt the cultural climate was much better for them in terms of education and family life.

 

I think you're right in saying she's still trying to understand Flynn, although I don't think the book will contribute much to her understanding, since he himself said the publishers took out the meat of it and left the fluff. They couldn't, I guess, at that time, include everything he wanted left in, or it would have caused an uproar. He lied a lot in it too, as he later admitted. For one thing he tells the story of the John Barrymore's corpse incident that never happened, as though it were fact. So did Raoul Walsh, for that matter. Flynn had a lot of fun, though, we must admit, playing fast and loose with facts for effect.

My own opinion is that she never stopped loving him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dothery.

 

 

I agree with this, although I remember reading a quote from her about marriage or a relationship with Errol. to the effect of, "I'm not going to regret it. It could've ruined my life".

I remember hearing her say that. She was very wise. I'm sure she would have rued the day, as darling as he was. He was never good luck to women. Even his last wife, Patrice Wymore, said it was sad to watch him ruining himself when he was doing drugs. Addicts are never fun to live with.

I was talking to a friend of mine about this thread and mentioned that I was doing some research on some films in the genre that may not be in the upper tier, but are of some merit and worth discussing.

 

So, he asked "Which do you have in mind?" and I cited PRINCE VALIANT, CAPTAIN LIGHTFOOT and especially BLACK SHIELD OF FALWORTH which I said was a particular favorite and one that I saw on AMC in letterboxed form many years ago and which I thought looked especially sumptuous.

 

"Wanna see it again?" he said, "I have the DVD."

 

So, hopefully we'll be getting together tonight to watch it or at least I'll make the trip and pick it up for viewing shortly. He and I go back some 48 years, so when we get together, there's often a lot of nostalgic reminiscing over a drink or two and we don't get to watching anything.

 

FALWORTH was Universal's first Cinemascope film, and to make this colorful adventure, they chose Rudolph Mate to direct, probably on the strength of his helming Tyrone Power's MISSISSIPPI GAMBLER for them which was quite successful. Plus, he also directed the enjoyable hokum of THE PRINCE WHO WAS A THIEF with Curtis, another film for which i have a soft spot.

clore, it's been so long since I saw Black Shield of Falworth that now I'm not even certain that I did see it. That was that film that I had always (erroneously) associated with Tony Curtis' legendary Bronx delivery of the line, "Yondah lies da castle of my foddah."

 

Curtis denied ever saying the line, placing the blame for the story upon Debbie Reynolds, who apparently made the comment on television that he had uttered the line. The closest to that line, by the way, that Curtis came was in Son of Ali Baba. Addressing Piper Laurie, he at one point says, "This is my father's palace, and yonder lies the Valley of the Sun."

 

At least that's according to an internet source that I found, since I've definitely never seen the second film:

What, no foddah?

In one of the Arab costume pictures U-I was also making at this time Jackie Gleason plays one of the hero's allies-I think it was Richard Greene. That sounded pretty out-of-place as well. To his credit Mr. Curtis did get better with experience. It's fun watching Rock Hudson and Dennis Weaver as well as Anthony/Tony evolve into the stars they became in these U-I films.

I watched FALWORTH tonight but was disappointed about the DVD. It was cropped to a 1.8:1 ratio and the print was also soft.

 

I suppose for a Universal of the period, it was fairly elaborate, but it's not as impressive in production design as even PRINCE VALIANT, let alone one of the MGM costumers of the era. But it was still fun if looked at as a juvenile romp, Curtis may be too obviously on the wrong side of the Atlantic, but he makes up for it in his enthusiasm and energy. Although sometimes doubled by Dave Sharpe, he does do a fair amount of the stunts.

 

What hurts the film is that villains David Farrar and Patrick O'Neal have so little to do, they don't make much of an impression outside of the script telling us that they are the bad guys. But Janet Leigh and Barbara Rush are gorgeous and Torin Thatcher steals the show as the mentor of Curtis. It still is probably the best of the actioners that Curtis made for Universal, although I will have to see THE PURPLE MASK again, but I recall that one as a somewhat dull Scarlet Pimpernel wannabe.

Thanks for the Falworth review, clore. It's a pretty rare film to see now, at least for me. I can't say that I'm dying to see ANY of those '50s Universal costumers but that doesn't mean they can't still be fun.

Filmlover, that's a lovely image. It's a rather elegant shot denoting a sense of peace (which, I guess, is not exactly what The Mark of Zorro was all about).

 

And I welcome you or anyone else who wants to add some shots of posters or lobby cards from any of the costumers or swashbucklers you love. Sometimes those images can do more to stir up memories, or create a sense of excitement about the films for those who have never seen them, than can a book full of writing.

 

Here's another promotional piece from the film that started the genre:

 

the-mark-of-zorro-1920-movie-poster-doug

 

Take note that the actor himself was used very much as a selling point for those not familiar at the time with the name Zorro.

I've since looked it up and discovered that there is a BluRay from Eureka, an import that's gotten some good reviews on the web. But it's pricey - Amazon wants 25 bucks for it and that's more than I would spend on a single title, but I'm frugal by necessity.

 

The odd thing is that my friend is usually on top of these things and the BluRay has been out for a few years whereas the DVD is a recent release. He's a former projectionist and very fussy about films in the proper ratio so I'm surprised that he bought it.

In addition to these, the three most famous versions of Anthony Hope's 1894 novel, there were two other silents of the tale filmed in 1913 and 1915, as well as a 1979 comic version with Peter Sellers. In addition, Blake Edwards' 1965 comedy The Great Race has a Zenda satire within it, featuring a surprisingly good duel between Tony Curtis and Ross Martin.

Seeing as how the '37 version of "Zenda" has always been my favorite Swashbuckler, Tom, do you know if TCM has ever shown the '22 version? 'Cause I'd love to see it shown on the Silent Sundays series.

 

Btw, I've just returned from the IMDb website and the "Zenda" page there because I wanted revisit what I've always thought to be some of the best dialogue in any Swashbuckler ever. And sure enough while reading the "memorable quote" page, I was again reminded of what great dialogue it is.

 

Take just one example here, for instance:

 

Rupert of Hentzau: "I see you want to let the drawbridge down. I just killed a man for that."

 

Rudolph Rassendyll: "An unarmed man, of course."

 

Rupert of Hentzau: "Of course!"

Yes, TCM has shown the '22 silent at least a couple of times, and it's quite a good film. I haven't read the Anthony Hope novel so I don't know how faithful it is to the original literary source. Since you're familiar with the Colman and carbon cope Granger versions, however, you may be surprised that there are a couple of differences in the story line of the silent from the later two versions.

Yeah, you did mention that in the '22 version, Michael isn't killed by Rupert when he's caught in flagrante with Michael's beloved, but instead is killed in a sword fight against Rudolf.

 

I think I'd like the latter versions' plotline better, however.

 

(...I mean how many sword fights does a hero have to be in anyway, eh?!) ;)

Thanks for the image of Prince of Foxes, heuriger. Yes, if you're interested, I mentioned this film on a February 3rd posting on this thread under the title "Historical Perspective of Swashbuckling Films of the Sound Era."

 

Please feel free to add the titles of any other films that you think should have been included.

Conceivably, for modern audiences, the two most recognized film Robin Hoods are Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner. There is, however, a rich history of those playing the Sherwood Forest bandit.

 

Jon Hall and Richard Greene, in a popular '50s television series, have taken their turns at playing this legendary figure, based on the tales of English folklore, while Cornel Wilde and John Derek both did slight variations by playing his son. There was also a revisionist take on Robin in the '70s with Sean Connery, as well as a Disney animated feature film and a Mel Brooks satire.

 

 

The following are posters advertising the two most beloved Robin Hoods from the classic period of Hollywood filmmaking.

Robert Donat became a star in 1934 in the first talkie adaption Alexander Dumas' 1844 novel, The Count of Monte Cristo. This was the film, coupled with Warner Brothers' release of Captain Blood the following year, that really put the swashbuckling genre back on the map again after the death of the silent era.

 

Aside from the numerous adaptions of the novel, the movies have also provided us with a number of spinoffs on it, as well. Among them Son of Monte Cristo (1941) and Return of Monte Cristo (1946), both featuring Louis Hayward. Other variations: Wife of Monte Cristo (1946), Treasure of Monte Cristo (1949) and Sword of Monte Cristo (1951).

 

Donat's version remains the most famous.

I sat down to watch CROSSED SWORDS tonight and it's really quite good. Yes, there are some technical shortcomings, the dubbing in spots is rather sloppy (if you can call sound coming out of still lips sloppy) and the editing leaves a lot to be desired.

 

But what a Flynn fan wants is to see Flynn in a good romp and this gives him that. He does seem to be more in spirit with the film than he was for AGAINST ALL FLAGS and maybe even a bit thinner. I use that as a point of reference as I've seen it more recently than MASTER OF BALLANTRAE.

 

Jack Cardiff's camera does a splendid job on actual locations and I wonder if he told Flynn that under such circumstances, "studio" lighting would not be available to enhance his appearance. There's definitely less under his chin here than in some of his other films leading up to this one. A few times though, I thought the camera got in a little too close and I could distinguish the stunt man by his ears from the back and there were a few facial shots that could have been better disguised but maybe that's just something that I notice and most won't as I somewhat expect it.

 

The costumes are also appealing, actually appearing as if people wore tham as opposed to getting them at Acme Costume Rentals.

 

There's some genuine laughs in here, enough to make one wish for a better script overall as the film does deliver in enough areas to leave one wishing for more, but being able to appreciate what there is.

clore, thanks very much for providing your review of Crossed Swords. For years it has been the rarest swashbuckler of Errol Flynn's career for anyone to view.

 

And, considering the fact that's it's an older Flynn and not a film with a favourable reputation, I think it's a relief for those Flynn fans that do see it to discover that both the film and Flynn are better than they might have expected.

 

You've already listed a number of the film's virtues. I might emphasis that, even though both the script and direction are sloppy, as well as, you mentioned, the editing, it's great to see Flynn and company romping on real Italian locations with genuine centuries-old castles in the background and on some Roman-constructed winding cobblestone streets.

 

 

The film's final duel is also quite exciting and, even though Errol is doubled in a few of the shots, he does most of the work himself. He had obviously shed a few pounds from his previous costumers (Against all Flags and Master of Ballantrae) and puts on a genuine athletic demonstration in this contest.

 

 

Flynn, by the way, was so impressed by Jack Cardiff's cinematography of both this film and Master of Ballantrae that he then hired him to not only photograph but also direct his personal project of William Tell, in 1953. The film was also to be lensed in Cinemascope, this being a decision that producer Flynn made even before the release of The Robe.

 

 

Flynn's Italian financial backers pulled out of the project after about a half hour of apparently stunningly beautiful Pathe color film was in the can. Flynn had invested $430,000 of his own money in the production, as well, and the death of the Tell project was the death of Flynn's career as a major player. It was also, needless to say, a major blow to him emotionally, as well.

 

 

Watching a fairly bouyant Flynn in Crossed Swords, filmed just before that disaster, is the closest that we can come to feeling what William Tell might have been like.

 

 

Appearances can be deceiving, though. Flynn collapsed on the set of Crossed Swords and had a near-fatal bout with hepatitis during the production of that film.

I wish this still from the aborted William Tell project was in colour. It makes your mouth water to think of what Cardiff's Pathe color photography of those magnificent Alps in the background must have been like for this film.

One of the great triumphs of production design (courtesy William Cameron Menzies) of the silent era, produced for the then-astronical sum of two million dollars (1924 dollars!), *The Thief of Bagdad* remains a peak in Arabian Nights fantasy escapism of any era. Douglas Fairbanks, as producer, star and writer, was the driving force behind this production, his athletic, at times balletic performance representative of the silent swashbuckling king at the zenith of his career in a film he regarded as his personal favourite.

 

Raoul Walsh was the assigned director in the first noteworthy film of his career, but this was a show that belonged to Fairbanks and Menzies.

Just discovered on a History2 program the root of the term "swashbuckler." It comes from a rather small shield used by archers. After all, archers cannot carry large shields. So, the "buckler" was round, about the size of a dinner plate, attached to the hand, and used to deflect a sword attack. When not in use, the buckler was attached to the hilt of a sword so that when the wearer walked (or swaggered) it made a sound. Ergo, "swashbuckler" became the nickname.
