Editorial Reviews

Produced for cable TV by The Disney Channel, The Black Arrow is based on the classic Robert Louis Stevenson adventure tale. Stephen Chase plays the title character, a dogooding swashbuckler who tries to avenge his father's murder during the War of the Roses. Though Chase carries the bulk of the action, top billing is bestowed upon the film's villains, Oliver Reed (as Sir Daniel Brackley) and Fernando Rey (as the Earl of Warwick). The Stevenson original was previously adapted for the screen in 1948, with Louis Hayward in the lead. Black Arrow made its TV debut on January 6, 1985 Actor Character Donald Pleasence Starring Oates Oliver Reed Starring Sir Daniel Brackley Fernando Rey Starring Earl of Warwick Benedict Taylor Starring Richard Shelton Roy Boyd Will Lawless Frank Brana Sykes Ralph Brown Yardley Stephan Chase Black Arrow Carol Gotell Hannah Robert Russell Appleyard Aldo Sanbrell Scar Georgia Slowe Lady Joanna Crew Name Title Jose Maria Alarcon Art Director Michael-John Biber Producer John Cabrera Cinematographer Geoffrey Foot Editor John Hough Director Stanley Myers Composer (Music Score) David Pursall Screenwriter Robert Louis Stevenson Book Author Harry Alan Towers Producer Harry Alan Towers Screenwriter

I never thought I would buy another movie on VHS, but I made an acception with the Black Arrow. I had taped it off the Disney Channel many years ago and it was accidentally taped over. I was hoping to someday see it on DVD, but with not much luck in that direction, I was glad to be able to purchase this copy on VHS. It is a wonderful movie, full of action, treachery and a touch of romance. If you like sword fights, crossbows and jolly old England, you'll love Black Arrow.Catherine

STORY: Not to be confused with the 1948 film starring Louis Hayward. Set during the English War of the Roses between the Houses of York and Lancaster. The Black Arrow is actually a character in the film (Stephen Chase), a Robin Hood-like swashbuckling archer with his own group of supporters. In the story, a rich and powerful English Lord with the York faction, the Sir Daniel Brackley (Oliver Reed in a stellar performance), is tyrannizing the peasants and plotting to manipulate the fates of a woman, the Lady Joanna (Georgia Slowe)that is supposed to be in his care as a ward or pupil. His plans include theft of her property, and forcing her to marry. The Lord is helped by his toadie Sir Oliver Oates (Donald Pleasance). Only the Black arrow can stop them but Brackley has branded him an outlaw and wants him dead. Terrific action fight scenes, fun for all ages.

TRIVIA & BEHIND THE SCENES: Directed by John Hough. This made for television movie was produced by Walt Disney Studios, and aired for the first time on "The Disney Channel" on January 6, 1985. It was quickly released to the VHS rental market later in the same year, and most copies available are former rentals. Since it has not been re-released in 25 years, copies can get pricey. The screenplay was written by David Pursall and Peter Welbeck, based on the classic adventure book from 1888 by Robert Luis Stevenson, who wrote Treasure Island, and Kidnapped. Filmed on location in Spain. The exciting musical score was composed by Stanley Myers for the film. 90 minutes long.
Terrific action fight scenes, fun for all ages.

Black Arrow is another great classic and by today's standards, not a flashy movie but when it was released it was at the top of Disney's game. Once again a great writer of stories from childhood days has his story brought to life by skilled movie makers.
