The Fighting O'Flynn (1949)



Reviews and Comments

"The biggest troubles do come in the smallest packages."

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (who also produced) follows in the footsteps of his father with his dashing, acrobatic portrayal of the lead. He's a carefree Irishman who runs across a woman with whom he falls in love. When she turns out to be an agent working against Napoleon Bonaparte's impending invasion, he helps her out. This is a clever, highly entertaining swashbuckler with, in sharp contrast to the cornball puns in action movies today, a few genuinely funny moments.
