I thought so, but it'd been awhile. Without a doubt Captain Blood (1935) is my favorite action/adventure film of all-time. Errol Flynn is simply amazing in the title role. He absolutely owns the camera with his every move with perhaps only Erich Wolfgang Korngold's rousing score registering on a scale approaching the young Flynn.
