Mmm Errol Flynn in thigh-high boots and tights so thin you can see the muscles work as he moves. Yesss.

And then I'm forced to admit that my shallowness ended there, because I got far more caught up in The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939) than I expected to, as a non-swashbuckling Flynn movie. Usually I'm not crazy about Bette Davis but she blew me away in this one.

I'm going to have to see more Flynn movies. Captain Blood, definitely need to see Captain Blood.

In dread news, I did my first proper shampooing today - and goodness that felt great. No discernable difference in hair so far, except my scalp going "OH JESUS YES". Spent two hours working with it to get it to dry, but with sunshine like this it was just enjoyable.

Flynn and Rathbone (for some reason I've never been able to stand Olivia de Havilland). That's it, I'm torrenting!

I need to see all of those. Man. I actually love Bette Davis, though that's mostly for All About Eve which is one of my all-time favorites. I think everything else pales in comparison to that.

But yes. Must explore more Flynn canon.

Maybe that's my problem - I've never seen All About Eve.

It's certainly the best film of hers I've seen, perhaps because it's almost painfully self-referential. I don't mean in particulars, but because she's playing a part that's so close to someone she might be. Anyway, I highly recommend it.
