This is a great adventure film about a man who is unjustly imprisoned, sold into slavery, and then discovers that he needs to fight for his freedom as a pirate.

For my money this first pairing of Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland is actually better than 'The Adventures of Robin Hood'. Flynn is at his most likable as Peter Blood, the reluctant hero who quickly adapts to his situ... read more

The beginning of the Flynn-de Havilland partnership, the Flynn-Curtiz partnership, establishing Erich Wolfgang Korngold as a movie composer, and ushering in a new era of swashbucklers.

Description: In the classic swashbuckling epic that catapulted him to worldwide stardom, Errol Flynn plays Dr. Peter Blood, an English physician unjustly convicted of treason and sentenced to slavery in the West Indies. Relying on his formidable nerve and wit, he escapes and soon becomes a feared pirate known as Captain Blood, a brilliant swordsman and seaman whose fiercely loyal crew is made up of runaway slaves grateful to him for winning their freedom. Olivia de Havilland, in the first of eight films starring opposite Flynn, is alluring as Arabella Bishop, the dashing pirate captain's romantic interest. Lionel Atwill, famed for his dement ...

There Will Be Blood

“Captain Blood, the one that started it all. The beginning of the Flynn-de Havilland partnership, the Flynn-Curtiz partnership, establishing Erich Wolfgang Korngold as a movie composer, and ushering in a new era of swashbucklers. Talk about a great start for two careers. Two unknown actors being cast in a major production at one of Hollywood's biggest studios. Should Hollywood have taken more risks like this more often, or was this just a freakishly lucky gamble?

Warner Bros where the best studio of the 1930's when it came to making thrillers and action pictures. The combination of Michael Curtiz's direction, Erich Wolfgang Korngold's pumping music scores, Errol Fylnn's embodiment of a swashbuckling action hero and the dynamic he shared with Olivia de Havilland, represents all the” read more

“This is a great adventure film about a man who is unjustly imprisoned, sold into slavery, and then discovers that he needs to fight for his freedom as a pirate.

For my money this first pairing of Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland is actually better than 'The Adventures of Robin Hood'. Flynn is at his most likable as Peter Blood, the reluctant hero who quickly adapts to his situation through verbal quips (and before long) swordplay.

Arabella Bishop (de Havilland) purchases him from a slave ship but he's too proud to admit that she saved him from a cruel slave master. She's obviously attracted to him but he acts like she's the worst thing that ever happened to him.

He gets thrown in with the rest of her father's slaves but he uses his skill as a doctor” read more

Tribute to Errol Flynn (12 movies items)

"With Olivia deHavilland: In Hollywood, Flynn spun his wheels in The Case of the Curious Bride and Don't Bet on Blondes (both 1935), before Jack Warner (of Warner Brothers - the studio to which Flynn was under contract) took a chance on this virtual unknown and cast him as Peter Blood in the big budget adventure film Captain Blood (1935). Captain Blood was hugely successful (due in large part to Flynn's charismatic persona) and made Flynn into an A-list star virtually overnight as well as Warn"

"One of the greatest G' old times adventures there is. Olivia De Havilland and Errol Flynn were without a doubt one of the best on screen pairs there's ever been. Great depiction of Sabatini's classical novel with some great swashbuckling scenes and Mr. Flynn's famous grin. This one being as well the first and the best of the movies Flynn made with Mike Curtiz. "

"9.24 The movie that made Errol Flynn a star. “Captain Blood” is rollicking, exciting high-seas pirate adventure overflowing with charisma and libido courtesy of course, of the one-and-only Flynn. One of his best pairings with the lovely Olivia de Havilland and starring his usual band of lackeys. "
