    Errol Flynn was given an opportunity to show off his boxing skills as he starred in the title role in Raoul Walsh's biographical drama on the life of James J. Corbett a.k.a. Gentleman Jim (1866-1933). Flynn gives one of the best performances of his career since Robin Hood, as Corbett, he prepares to become a professional boxer as he challenges the heavyweight champion, John L. Sullivan (1858-1918), magnificently portrayed by Ward Bond. Beautiful Alexis Smith makes her second film appearance with Flynn, a perfect leading lady since Olivia de Havilland. Also starring Jack Carson, Alan Hale, John Loder, William Frawley, Minor Watson, Madeleine LeBeau, Arthur Shields, Rhys Williams, Dorothy Vaughan & Mary Gordon.

  • Errol Flynn's Best Movie

    I watched Gentleman Jim last night on my 52 inch LCD screen. The film really came to life for me. Flynn was truly enjoying himself in this role. It was made for him. And it was in my opinion his best performance. It takes agood actor to bring a character like Corbet to life.The movie was fast paced and entertaining and is one of the best movies ever made.Great supporting cast.A classic!

    This is a really great and overlooked film. This is Errol Flynn's best performance and Ward Bond is the best among the excellent supporting cast. Very well made, fine direction by Raoul Walsh. It's Flynn's film all the way.

    Weather fact or exaggeration about the life of Jim Corbet, Warner Brothers had the ability to make excelent movies and this is one of them. Worth watching over an over again.

    when i first saw this movie, it put a stride in my walk, knowing that the smaller and weaker things in life sometimes have a stronger will and determination than the things that others look at as unmovable and impossible to change.
