Errol Flynn pirate Captain BloodErrol Flynn Movies on DVD: Warner's The Errol Flynn Signature Collection

Errol Flynn was one of the most handsome and most dashing leading men during the studio era – or any era, for that matter. Although Flynn rarely gave what could be considered a “good” performance (his excellent dramatic turn in The Sun Also Rises is a notable exception), he was so great to look at that lack of acting ability was a minor inconvenience.

Warner Home Video is releasing The Errol Flynn Signature Collection, a six-disc DVD package containing five Errol Flynn Warner Bros. movies: Captain Blood (1935), The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939), Dodge City (1939), The Sea Hawk (1940), and They Died with Their Boots On (1941).

All but one of those (The Sea Hawk) co-stars Olivia de Havilland as Flynn's romantic interest, and all but one (They Died with Their Boots On) was directed by Michael Curtiz. (For the record: Flynn's The Sea Hawk leading lady is Brenda Marshall; Raoul Walsh directed They Died with Their Boots On.)

Errol Flynn Warner Bros. movies

Though not necessarily great films, they are all worth watching because, well, Errol Flynn is the star, and as a plus the boast excellent production values. (Note: both The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex and Dodge City are in color.) Also, all five Flynn vehicles feature a gallery of Warner Bros. notables. Besides Olivia de Havilland, you'll find Bette Davis (The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex), Claude Rains (The Sea Hawk), Sydney Greenstreet (They Died with Their Boots On), and Ann Sheridan (Dodge City).

Additionally, the Errol Flynn set also includes the feature documentary The Adventures of Errol Flynn (2005) and several featurettes pertaining to each of the Flynn movies.

The Errol Flynn Signature Collection is scheduled to come out in North America on April 19.
