Pod Hard

Action Movie History Michael Curtiz+Errol Flynn Special (GUEST: Alex Rallo)

July 23, 2020

Jonas Högberg & Anders Hultqvist celebrate the twentieth episode of English speaking Pod Hard with a swashbuckler-special! Three adventure movies directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Errol Flynn are on the menu today.

To help seal the deal the Pod Hard-duo is accompanied by their first guest: Alex Rallo, better known as the enigmatic and all-knowing action connoisseur @HeadExposure on Twitter.

Alex is a die hard fan of swashbucklers and brings class, wit and analytical prowess to the proceedings. Needless to say, Jonas and Anders are relieved to finally be joined by a smart person.

The tantalizing threesome discuss mighty naval battles, the sounds of arrows, fencing shadows, people falling like fruit from trees, how to capture several levels of action in one shot and the tumultuous relationship between Curtiz and Flynn.

And of course, a big shout out to Olivia de Havilland, now 104 years young!

"We'll board a ship that's not sinking!"

The movies:

Captain Blood (1935)

The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)

The Sea Hawk (1940)
