So I've started collecting Pirate flicks and after watching about 60 of them, I have to say, forget Johnny Depp or Robert Newton. Errol Flynn practically wrote the book on playing a pirate. But after watching his movies... I have to ask... after watching a couple of Pirate movies, I have to ask... Is Neville Sinclair from The Rocketeer supposed to be a political jab at Errol Flynn? I've seen too many similarities... You see Sinclair playing a robin hood style role - Errol Flynn played Robin Hood. Both were skilled fencers. They look similar. (Older Flynn) Errol Flynn was accused (Falsely) of being a Nazi sympathizer - Sinclair WAS a Nazi.
