Director: Lewis Milestone. Music: Franz Waxman
(An interesting aside: Helmut Dantine was a young Austrian who worked tirelessly in the Vienna anti-Nazi movement. He was imprisoned for it, but family got him out and sent him to America for safety. In his acting career, however, he played many Nazi parts in movies during these years. It must have been satisfying to him to portray them as the monsters they were for all the world to see. That's Hollywood for you!)
Director: Raoul Walsh. Music: Max Steiner/Hugo Friedhofer
(A personal aside: It must have been really difficult to live in America during World War II with the name Adolph Deutsch!)
These movies have it all – great character actors, creative cinematography and sets, soaring music that usually includes La Marseilles, American anthems and God Save the King, and especially patriotism in its purest form. And of course, Errol Flynn. Treat yourself and get this set. It will be an exceptional addition to your movie collection.
(Some of these and many other Flynn movies will be showing on Turner Classic Movies for Errol Flynn Day on August 7.)
