TCM SPOTLIGHT ERROL FLYNN ADVENTURES


TCM SPOTLIGHT ERROL FLYNN ADVENTURES.

Warner Brothers has released five restored and remastered Errol Flynn features in a five DVD set: The films include Desperate Journey (1942), in which Flynn and Ronald Reagan are pilots stranded behind enemy lines; Northern Pursuit (1943), in which Flynn is a Canadian officer infiltrating a bunch of Nazi saboteurs; Edge of Darkness (1943), in which Flynn is a brave resistance fighter; Uncertain Glory (1944), in which Flynn is a French playboy who makes the supreme sacrifice; and Objective, Burma (1945), in which Flynn is part of a platoon sent to destroy a "strategic Japanese outpost." The directors are Raoul Walsh and Lewis Milestone.

In addition to these films, this box set also includes selected short subjects from the period, such as cartoons, classic movie trailers, and newsreels!

Verdict: A must for Flynn, war movie, and action fans. ***.
