      You know I ve read many post, critics views, etc. on this wonderful movie of Errol, in fact I feel its one, if not, Errol’s greatest performances; in some of what I’ve read throughout the years are how they try and compare this movie to that of real life version – why?
      Not all films or better, yet most films as far as I am concerned, shouldn’t be about how true to the point, but as to how much did it entertain me.

      When I sit and view a movie, whether in big theater ( as these should be seen) or on a big screen at home, I want to forget my day, and simply engulf myself into the flick. So I wish all these so-called critics and film reviewers posting their opinion, whether Custer died this way, or the song “Garry Owens” was one that Custer actually sang while he was still in West Point, as appose to that of the movies version- as he is passing by a bar and hears it, decides to go in and have a few drinks with the lads, in so doing here’s this bloke at the piano, Lt. ‘Queen’s Own’ Butler, playing it, of which Custer eventually decides to make it the 7th Calvary theme song, etc. etc. etc. …
      I don’t care what version is true! Lets forget realism for a few moments in time, and simply enjoy the film for what it is intended for; ENTERTAINMENT…. And one as good as this one, is as good as it gets for any age, from young to old, and for men and woman; there’s something for everyone in this flick, it also has one of the best romantic lines of all time, in saying good by to his wife Libby (Olivia de Havilland ) – “Walking through life with you, ma’am, has been a very gracious thing…” – in this you can really feel not only the performance but their (Flynn – de Havilland) ventures also coming to an end, s it contained some of their most telling scenes together – after eight moves together. As Olivia de Havilland In real life, she knew she’d never work with Flynn again, and she felt that he knew it too. The scene is almost unbearable in its sadness or regret, both the characters and the actors. At a screening 40 years later, de Havilland, then about 65, walked out in the middle of it. She went to the lobby, sat down and began to cry…

        Thank you for this tremendous contribution, robins-hood. You are so right. No one in history other than Errol Flynn could have ever given a performance as immortally great as the one Errol gave as Custer. No one. This is another example of why Flynn will never be topped or forgotten. He was the best.……
