Description by OLDIES.com:

Desperate Journey (1942): Allied airmen shot down over Germany fight their way back to England. Errol Flynn leads Ronald Reagan and other flyboys in a rousing wartime spirit-lifter.

Edge Of Darkness (1943): They're everyday citizens -- and extraordinary heroes. Flynn and Ann Sheridan rally Norwegians against the Nazi occupiers of their once-peaceful village.

Northern Pursuit (1943): Icebound wilds and ice-blooded Nazis! Canadian officer Flynn infiltrates a cadre of saboteurs and guides them toward their destination...and into the unraveling of their scheme.

Uncertain Glory (1944): The Gestapo decree: 100 Frenchmen will die if a resistance leader fails to turn himself in. Condemned French prisoner Flynn volunteers to pose as the wanted man.

Objective, Burma! (1945): Pinned down in the jungle -- and fighting back! Flynn commands a stranded paratrooper patrol in this gritty, volatile tale noted for its battlefield authenticity.

Product Description:

As one of Hollywood's earliest romantic heroes and the quintessential swashbuckler, Errol Flynn never planned to become a matinee icon. Flynn achieved commercial success on an accidental basis, when Warner Bros. tapped the then-unknown to fill in for Robert Donat in the adventure saga CAPTAIN BLOOD (1935). This was an ingenious decision: it created a legend, and brought in astonishing box office receipts for the studio, which promptly signed Flynn to a lucrative contract and made him an A-list star. This box set contains five Flynn vehicles, produced between 1942 and 1945: DESPERATE JOURNEY (1942), with Flynn as an Allied airman shot down over Germany;, EDGE OF DARKNESS (1943), with Flynn and Ann Sheridan as Norwegians rallying anti-Nazi support; NORTHERN PURSUIT (1943), with Flynn as a Canadian officer who infiltrates a group of Nazis; UNCERTAIN GLORY (1944), with Flynn as a condemned French prisoner who attempts to save the lives of 100 others by posing as a resistance leader; and OBJECTIVE, BURMA!, with Flynn as the commander of a stranded paratrooper unit in the jungle. Bonus features include various newsreels, trailers and short subjects pulled from each feature's year of release.
