Against All Flags (1952)

here's a fun little movie, with a great cast and lots of really cool miniatures.

the DVD looks great. Errol Flynn is a bit past his prime, but it still charming.  Anthony Quinn is excellent as the villain, Capt. Roc Brasilian, and one almost feels sorry for him as we all know his eventual end!

however, it's the wonderful Maureen O'Hara who steals the show.  she is just great in this.  has she made a bad movie?  if so, I've not seen it yet.  she also does her own swordfighting in here, and kills more of the pirates than Flynn does.  she's just awesome and looks quite spectacular in her pirate gear.
the DVD is paired with Buccaneer's Girl (1950) which is also very cool and has a great lead in Yvonne De Carlo (the later Lily Munster). both movies are a lot of fun.
