The New York Times Review ---- about the film and the stunning Technicolor work with stunning Technicolor camera work, has created several memorable and beautiful sequences. It is a good film, one well worth seeing; how much better it might have been with an Essex worthy of Miss Davis's Elizabeth we can only surmise
1939 Review! Funny the snobbery of the times reviewer - Flynn was a natural Davis admitted years later! Seems Bette Davis read the Times review for her then opinion of Flynn!
It's odd that's a review without a byline. It's either an anonymous Bosley Crowther being his usual charming self or a staffer trying to emulate his bitchy style!
