    Errol Flynn at his peak! No one made these like Warner Brothers!

    THE SEA HAWK is superb filmmaking from Hollywood's Golden Age. From the first view of the Warner's logo to the rousing finish, it never lets up in its excitement or its grand, epic feel. Yet again, Warners brought together some of their finest talents to produce a swashbuckler like no one else could. Under the sure hand of director Michael Curtiz (CASABLANCA, DODGE CITY), Errol Flynn gives one of his finest performances. He is in glorious company: Flora Robson as Queen Elizabeth; Henry Daniell and Claude Rains as the oily villains; Alan Hale (again) as Flynn's trusty sidekick; and Brenda Marshall as his lady-love. Even the smallest roles are well-cast.

    Against the backdrop of Erich Korngold's stirring musical score, Curtiz offers a lesson in black-and-white filmmaking, with sea battles and set designs that cannot fail to enhance your experience. The climactic duel between Flynn and Daniell ranks as one of the most dynamic and furious ever captured on film. Flynn is more confident and commanding here than in CAPTAIN BLOOD, and may even make you forget his faultless work in THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (both films directed by Curtiz).

    THE SEA HAWK is a must-have for adventure lovers! They really don't make them like this anymore!

    2 points to port

    You can't go wrong with an Errol Fylnn movie. There is always plenty of action. Errol gets it all in this one, to be a hero, the respect of his crew, the queen and even the enemy, but mainly he gets the girl.

    the best of the genre.

    the Sea Hawk still plays after 60 plus years.while gone with the seems quaint/dated. flynn and company put it all together with the soaring music of Eric Korngold.You cant make a film like this any more although Master and Commander comes close.
