The Alternate Movie Title Game (Volume 5 - Errol Flynn Edition)

Here are the rules: We will provide an "alternate title" for a classic movie and ask you to name the actual film. Most of these are pretty easy. Please answer no more than three questions per day so others can play. You may have an answer other than the intended one--just be able to defend it! Good luck.

1. Perilous Trek.

2. Rapiers That Form an "X"

3. Not in Favor of Any Pennants.

4. The Big Star at Dawn (this one is a stretch).

5. Liz and Robert: Confidential.

6. One More Daybreak.

7. Don't You Ever Try to Leave Me!

8. Let's Leave It at a Trio.

9. The Early Morning Squad.

10. Dr. Pirate.

11. Showdown in the Alamo.

12. The Killer Dentist.

13. RCMP vs. The Nazis.

14. The Jean Picard Story.

15. Red Beard and the Boy Spy.


  1. I'll do the easiest one: 10, Dr. Pirate = Captain Blood

    1. And you've gotten this game off to a rousing start!

  2. 13. 49th Parallel aka The Invaders

    1. That's not an Errol Flynn movie.

    2. I thought about that in the middle of the night. Then spent the next hour trying to remember Northwest Pursuit. When I catch the last part of a movie on TCM I have trouble with titles.

  3. 2. Crossed Swords
    5. The Private Lives Of Elizabeth and Essex

    1. Well done! Wish CROSSED SWORDS would be shown more often. Not a great movie, but it also stars Gina Lollobrigida.

  4. 3. Against All Flags
    7. Escape Me Never
    9. The Dawn Patrol

    1. Great job! It's a fun screwball comedy that's not shown as often as it should be.

  6. 11. San Antonio
    12. Footsteps in the Dark
    14. Uncertain Glory

    1. Well done, Al. Interesting that Errol made two DAWN movies: this one and THE DAWN PATROL.

    1. Yes, that's the correct answer for this one.
