Unbuckle your swash and let the blarney fly as Fairbanks plays a ripsnorting Irish leader in the time of Napoleon. There is some worry that The Little Corporal will attempt to take over Erin. Fairbanks, equally adroit with a saber, a rapier, a shillelagh, or a kiss, does a splendid job in

what is almost, but not quite, a satire of Errol Flynn and even Fairbanks himself in THE CORSICAN BROTHERS. Fairbanks is traveling to a castle he has inherited when he rescues Carter, daughter of Viceroy Hare, as her coach is being waylaid. Fairbanks leaps from horse to horse, roof to roof, heart

to heart, and saves Ireland from the duplicity of Greene, who is Hare's assistant and in Napoleon's employ. Very enjoyable nonsense with lots of derring-do from Fairbanks in the kind of role his dad used to play.
