Product Description


Five years after Captain Blood made him a swashbuckling star, Errol Flynn returned to the high seas as privateer Captain Thorpe in The Sea Hawk. Flynn plays the dashing gentleman pirate as dedicated patriot, looting Spanish ships for English coffers with the private blessing of Queen Elizabeth (Flora Robson, reprising the role from Fire over England). The film opens with a rousing sea battle: broadside cannon fire sends masts falling and splinters a-flying before Flynn's men take their Spanish quarry in a furious shipboard cutlass battle. The fearless fighter becomes a stumbling schoolboy when he falls for the Spanish ambassador's niece, but he's back in his element when he sails to the New World for treasure and lands in the middle of a deadly conspiracy. Big-eyed beauty Brenda Marshall stands in for Flynn's usual love interest Olivia de Havilland, and the film misses the latter's sass and spirit, but it's a minor shortcoming. Claude Rains plays his usual smoothly conniving villain, and hearty Alan Hale returns as Flynn's loyal sidekick. Michael Curtiz proves once again why he was Warner Brothers' top director with a handsome, action-packed film that mixes intrigue and suspense with grand set pieces, concluding with a rousing series of escapes, chases, and a runaway sword fight. Classic Hollywood swashbuckling at its best. --Sean Axmaker

5.0 out of 5 stars Errol Flynn the Pirate King of the movies March 12 2014
By Arcanum
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you liked Errol Flynn in Captain Blood or Don Juan, I am sure that you will also love this movie. I believe it was nominated for 4 academy awards. Its a great rollicking Hollywood swashbuckler adventure. Johnny Depp eat your heart out Errol Flynn is the Pirate King of the movies, not your sad characterisation! Great fun for all ages. Fantastic musical score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. The end of the movie is a rousing call to arms for England and the world as the parallels between the threat of the Spanish Armada and the rise of nazi aggression are there.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents "THE SEA HAWK" (1940) (127 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Starring Errol Flynn, Brenda Marshall, Claude Rains, Donald Crisp & Alan Hale

Directed by Michael Curtiz

Geoffrey Thorpe is an adventurous and dashing pirate, who feels that he should pirate the Spanish ships for the good of England. In one such battle, he overtakes a Spanish ship and when he comes aboard he finds Dona Maria, a beautiful Spanish royal. He is overwhelmed by her beauty, but she will have nothing to do with him because of his pirating ways. When the ship reaches England, Queen Elizabeth sends Thorpe on a mission and in the process, he becomes a prisoner of the Spaniards. Thorpe escapes and returns to England to uncover some deadly secrets. Exciting duels follow as Thorpe must expose the evil and win Dona Maria's heart.

A very entertaining swashbuckler with a wonderful score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great swashbuckler films April 11 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The Sea Hawk is one of the great swashbuckler films of all time. Errol Fylnn was in top form for the movie. The fencing is a joy to watch. As the author of The Encyclopdia of the Sword and The Art and Science of Fencing, and the publisher of Fencers Quarterly Magazine, I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Classic July 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a great Errol Flynn classic. His performance is excellent. The music by Korngold is some of the best ever written for a movie! The plot is very good, even though the movie does not bear much resemblance to Sabatini's novel. Over all, it is a fine swashbuckling love story full of intrigue and heroism and, of course, sword fighting. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Right up there with the top 10! July 21 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This movie has to be seen to be believed. It's an absolutely fabulous film. Director Michael Curtiz is, in my opinion, one of the great storytellers of all time. (After all, he directed "Casablanca" only two years after "The Sea Hawk.") This is a film unencumbered by flashback sequences and neurotic characters. At the same time, the characters are rich and complicated, all of them caught in an escalating war between England and Spain. These were symbolic when the film was made for the Allies and the Nazis, and you can almost feel the actors' intensity over their uncertainty of the future, and Erich Korngold's music is probably his masterpiece in conveying not only chivalry and heroism, but an extraordinary longing for freedom and release from political aggression.
Like the other reviewers have noted, Errol Flynn is at his best. The cast is generally superb, although I would have cast something closer to a real Spaniard for Don Alvarez instead of - again! - Claude Rains. As a Spaniard, he should at least have tempered his British accent. Flora Robson as Queen Elizabeth I is simply the best Elizabeth I have ever seen on film. (Sorry Bette Davis and Judi Dench.)
This film is not only thrilling, dashing, and heartwarming, it is really "about" something. And since September of 2001, this film has suddenly taken on yet a new meaning for our own time.
I am holding my breath for a DVD of this soon?? And please, be careful with the sound transfer. The music for this film is one of the finest film scores ever composed.
