Bloom Fulfills Childhood Dreams


Orlando Bloom Errol Flynn Pirates Of The Caribbean

British actor Orlando Bloom has fulfilled his childhood fantasy of being Errol Flynn while filming a swashbuckling stunt on the set of Pirates Of The Caribbean: DEAD MAN'S CHEST.
The 29-year-old was thrilled at the opportunity to mimic big-screen legend Flynn's jump from a mast. During shooting, one scene required Bloom to plunge a dagger into a sail and then slide down it.
The star says, "It was one of my boyhood dreams to copy Flynn. I was harnessed to wires to stop me flying off the sail - but it was tricky.
"I was only 20 feet from the ground, rather than 100. I jumped from the mast and landed on the sail. I didn't even think about it going wrong."

The Adventures Of Robin Hood Review


Excellent
The Adventures of Robin Hood is one of those rare studio system movies that started out as a regular genre film and somehow surpassed itself, feeding off a creative energy that generated its own sweeping artistry. It blurs the line of categories to include all types and styles: a swashbuckling action-adventure; a romantic fairy tale full of yearning looks and limpid eyes; a sight-gag comedy with dashing derring-do and hilarious costumes. Coming right down to it though, it's a 65-year-old classic that still holds its rank as a movie among movies.

In 1938 Robin Hood was a huge success. It added to the Errol Flynn-Olivia de Havilland aura as a leading romantic team (they made six more films together). It also received special attention by using the new and expensive three-strip Technicolor in its cinematography. If you had a chance to see the restored 35mm print that made the rounds at various big-city theaters last August, good for you -- you've experienced what "glorious Technicolor" really is and you're one up on the rest of us. But the new release of The Adventures of Robin Hood on a two-disc DVD special edition might just even the score. It's hard to beat seeing any classic on the big screen, but the sparkling sharpness of this DVD image and the high quality and quantity of the extras almost make up for the lack of big-screen opportunities.
