The Master of Ballantrae
of Ballantrae is absolutely the best Flynn of the 50's. The
script, score and color cinematography are first rate but the
main asset is Flynn. He really shows up in this one. He proves,
probably for the last time, why he was such a big star. Also,
its a good buddy picture with a funny Irish actor (can't remember
the name)playing the Alan Hale role. There are some fabulous
locations and a couple of solid villians to round things out.
Another asset is the use of real sailing ships. There are very
few process shots or back projection garbage in this one. If
you're a Flynn fan and you've missed this one check it out.
It's a terrific, action packed swashbuckler.
