...the net result is still a fine swashbuckling sword-opera, with Errol Flynn suitably cast as an eighteenth-century Scottish daredevil. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Later day Flynn, who has swashed better buckles.
Description by OLDIES.com:
The gleam in his eye matches that of his drawn sword. Errol Flynn, the greatest of all swashbuckling stars, triumphs again in The Master of Ballantrae. Flynn portrays Ballantrae Castle's Jamie Durisdeer, a heroic Highlander-turned-pirate in a colorful version of Robert Louis Stevenson's masterwork of gallantry.
