    I’ve always been fascinated watching Basil and Errol.Perfectly matched June bugs from the lands down under.
    6’2″ the both both of them. I’m so glad we have them on tape and in digital posterity.

      I was just going to say the same thing you did! Flynn and Rathbone were amazing together, in fights and out. In the movies I’ve seen Rathbone appear in without Errol, Rathbone just seemed to be unbalanced in some way, too lean, too quick of movement or something like that. But teamed up together, Flynn and Rathbone were perfect. Also, Rathbone was so expert with a sward that he made it seem as easy as if he were twirling a pencil. I’m sure Errol learned a thing or two from him as well. Together they were as light as two feathers fluttering in the breeze, and riveting to watch.
