Italian-born Rafael Sabatini (1875-1950) studied in Switzerland and Portugal, then settled in his mother's homeland of England. His historical fiction was slow to find a large audience until Scaramouche became a post-World War I bestseller in the U.S. Several of his works, including Captain Blood and Sea Hawk were made into successful motion pictures. Sabatini collaborated on the screenplay for Captain Blood, a 1935 Academy Award-winning film starring Errol Flynn as the heroic and idealistic pirate captain.
