An intermittently diverting travesty of the Errol Flynn movies of the 1930s and 1940s. There's little substance here, seemingly because the creators couldn't decide between a parody and a straight adventure film. Jones and Shaw (who was already 49 years of age and a few years past it for

one of the supporting numbskulls. Some tasteless gay jokes, heaving bosoms, and lots of blood in this near-total waste. Note Anjelica Huston, winner of the Oscar for her work in PRIZZI'S HONOR.
