  • Flynn war movie delivers more than you'd expect

    I really want to recommend this movie. The premise is fascinating; the twists are surprising; the way the plot is resolved is very satisfying. Errol Flynn plays a convicted killer (NOT a French playboy as the TCM capsule description sloppily notes) who escapes death by guillotine in a very attention-getting first ten minutes, but then is re-captured by his Inspector Javert-like police pursuer (Paul Lukas). While Lukas brings him back to Paris from the French countryside in handcuffs for another attempt at execution, Flynn pitches the idea that will form the crux of the movie: he will pose as the saboteur who blew up a bridge while a Nazi military train crossed over it. If the Nazis believe him, they will free 100 innocent Frenchmen who were taken hostage. Flynn will be executed anyway, but 100 innocent men will be freed. Upright policeman Lukas can't resist Flynn's deal, and how events play out from there is fascinating. Hey, it ain't just me who liked this underrated wartime gem; my wife really liked it too! See it and see for yourself!

  • Flynn and Walsh attempt film noir

    • Joseph Brush

    Uncertain Glory is a strange movie for Errol Flynn to make at this time in his career. Perhaps Flynn and director Raoul Walsh were trying to darken his persona with this portrayal of a conniving thief who isn't brave or noble like typical Flynn (that is until the end). Co-starring Paul Lukas (and a competent supporting cast), Uncertain Glory is a downbeat story about a wanted criminal on the run and his relentless pursuer during World War Two in occupied France. The Flynn character finds out that his days of anti-social behaviour are running out. He discovers that he has led a wasteful life when he meets a simple French girl but that it is too late for him to have a normal life. There are many elements in this movie that remind me of film noir but the movie falls short on delivering the total goods. There should have been a major film actress portraying the love interest who is aware of Flynn's pending self sacrifice but keeps that knowledge to herself. A femme fatale could have also improved the movie.Oh well, Uncertain Glory delivers more promise than satisfactory results but it contained enough good scenes to keep me interested.
