I don’t remember how old I was the first time I saw a “swashbuckling” movie??? But, the way I drank in the classics, I was probably just a child. 🙂
Ah yes, there is nothing like a good swashbuckling movie. To be transported by the film makers to that time when men and women engaged in daring and romantic adventures! Oh yes, and they did it so well, the hero or heroine’s wish was to impress or attract attention. There was so much bravado and flamboyance. Who better, than the King of the swashbucklers to begin our journey.
Errol Flynn made our hearts swoon with his romantic escapades. *Sigh* What a guy! My husband says, he’s athletic.
Oh my goodness! Who doesn’t swoon at the sight of Douglas Fairbanks Jr??? Ronald Colman is the second gentle man in the photo in, Prisoner of Zenda. These men of the classics knew how to do swashbuckling right!
There is the Fox ~ Zorro and his horse Tornado! ~Mysterious ~Masculine ~Swoon worthy!
“Sink meh,” Percy can wield a sword! The Scarlet Pimpernel, the man of disguises!
Epic contemporary sword play ~ the rogue and the swashbuckling hero in, Pirates of the Caribbean.
If all phantoms could look like this??? Whoops! Did I say that out loud??? He was obsessed, wounded, mysterious. Me thinks he would be the “rogue.” Of course, we all remember the slashing sword fight at the cemetery!
My hubby is teasing me as I conclude this sudden blog post. You might ask, why is he teasing you??? Thank-you for asking! 🙂 One night, I was lying on the couch and a movie came on television. There was a castle with a moat. Weeeeeellll, a man in a dark costume came up out of the moat and I came up off the couch. Rick has never let me forget that. He has teased me without mercy and he is teasing me now. So, it might be a good idea to watch swashbuckling movies alone. Of course, there are many more heroic movies, I have just listed a few. Which ones have you watched? What are your favorites? lol. Enjoy!
