Can’t do better than invite you to admire the delicious screen caps done by A Folded Umbrella of the Baz in CAPTAIN BLOOD. It’s said the British writer Daphne Du Maurier had a crush on Basil when she was a teenager and that she subsequently based the pirate/lover in FRENCHMAN’S CREEK on his incarnation of the dashing, crazy, devastatingly romantic Levasseur. So whatever was up with her in the self-esteem department (seriously, REBECCA is an essay on inadequacy and desperate over-compensation), there was nothing wrong with her aesthetic sense. If FRENCHMAN’S CREEK had happened ten years earlier, maybe the B would have been playing the love interest instead of horny Lord Rockingham.
