The movie is pure background.. Flynn is miscast. Lupino is phoning it in. Good role-wrong story.But out of nowhere there's this stunning ballad: LOVE FOR LOVE by composer KORNGOLD. Beautiful melody, arrangement and lyrics. Is that Lupino on the vocal.It repeats as an instrumental theme throughout the movie and for that reason alone the movie is watchable.Trying to find the lyrics to the song. Can't believe it's not a standard in the American Song Book. Oh to hear Ella Fitzgerald sing it!!!
I liked this movie, and enjoyed the part that Ida Lupino played very much. The music was good, and Errol Flynn made a perfect cad.
A Rainy Day Movie To Escape With
- Joseph Brush
Escape Me Never isn't as half as bad as some reviewers would have you believe. It's just unusual to see Flynn writing ballet, but I believe he was glad not be wielding a gun or a sword for a change. Overall, the cast does pretty well with the unimaginative story and direction they had to work with. By the way, Flynn did in appear in movies several times with children other than Dodge City as mentioned above in a review. Movies such as Never Say Goodbye, The Prince And The Pauper, and Kim come to mind.
Adored this film.
There are so many classics I have not seen, and "Escape me never", was one of them. I was immediately captured by the cast, and the emotion that the whole story carried. I SO wanted to buy this one, but disappointed it wasn't on the list. It made me cry.....and if any film can make me cry... it's got to be good....and it was magnificent, all the way through! I hope you will show it again!!
Escape Me Never Cast
Let's face it...the plot was kind of weak, but Flynn and Lupino are great..especially Ida Lupino...I just love her in everything from They Drive By Night to Women In Chains. She was the best.
All Star Cast - Little Emotional Envolvement(1947)
Erroll Flynn headlines in lederhosen no less, but his puppy love looks do little to carry this film. Ida Lupino, Eleanor Parker, and Gig Young combine to cross the Venice countryside. Unless you enjoy a film with little emotional envolvement, then you might appreciate just watching the star power, other than that I would recommend Rick Steves Europe DVD's. Too bad, this film had such promise, but somewhere along the way, it just doesn't work.
Escape Me Never (1947)
- James Higgins
Very melodramatic, actually a bit silly at times, and if it wasn't for the terrific cast it wouldn't be as bearable. Ida Lupino is a bit over the top though, Errol Flynn is fine though. It's just a bit much.
Flynn & Lupino and some parenting
- Jarrod McDonald
I watched this film yesterday in bits and pieces, then I decided to watch it straight through. I had a hard time getting into it. But after I finished, I was glad I had paid thorough attention to it. And a day later, it really has resonated with me. This is a fine effort, because it has all those great elements that make for a splendid Warners-Flynn vehicle: it has adventure; romance; some men in tights; and Korngold's lush score. The added bonus in this project is Ida Lupino (where normally it would've been Olivia DeHavilland in Flynn's earlier films). Also, Gig Young seems to be perfectly cast as the brother...they do seem related. It's a shame the film didn't do well in its initial release...I read that Flynn was very upset by the critics' negative reviews, since he had high hopes for it. What makes this film stand-out is the fact that we get to see Flynn do a bit of parenting with the child of Lupino's character. Usually there is not much time for kids in Flynn's movies, because he's trying to save the day. The only other kid character I recall is Bobs Watson in Dodge City, but he gets killed off half-way through the picture.
Has anyone seen the 1935 version?
- robert garrett
I'm wondering whether Sebastian (Dubrok) was Sebastian Sanger in the 1935 English movie. In Margaret Kennedy's novel "The Constant Nymph" Sebastian was the youngest of Sanger's Circus and in her later play he was The Fool of the Family from which "Escape Me Never" was taken.
Great Job Ida!
I saw this film for the first time a few hours ago, and actually feel it's one of Ida Lupino's best. She's really cute, and the chemistry between she and Errol jumps off the screen. Errol as usual, is his "devil-may-care" likeable self. Both handle the dramatic scenes beautifully. Thoughly Entertaining! I loved it!
One of my personal favorites
- David P.
This is personally my favorite Errol Flynn film, and considering that he is one of my favorite actors, this is a great compliment! But not only is this film Flynn's best, it's just a fantastic movie in general. Ida Lupino couldn't have been more heart-breaking. The supporting cast was absolutely excellent with Gig Young and Eleanor Parker leading the way. This movie features a music score that is my second favorite of all time (next to Claude Debussy's 'Girl With the Flaxen Hair' in Portrait of Jennie).
