5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Gracious Thing May 20, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
After "The Adventures of Robin Hood," this is Errol Flynn's best movie. As noted elsewhere, it's worthless as history. But the casting of Flynn as Custer has a resonance that burns up the screen, and behind the romanticism one glimpses a portrait of an unhappy, self-destructive man who is a hero in spite of himself. Flynn's farewell scene with Olivia de Havilland is almost unbearably moving, as if both sensed the real-life parallel and the future awaiting them both. This is a rousing, action-packed movie with just about everything: adventure, comedy and romance... but it's one of the rare ones that also gets under your skin.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Don't Care March 12, 2005
I don't care if the film is historically inaccurate. Errol Flynn may not have been an ideal figure in real life but the movies he was in, well, I was raised with the 30's and 40's films and his films always gave me a hero to look up to and how things should have been done. They inspired me and taught me right from wrong and how to treat people fairly. Along with my Dad's guidelines, I was better for it. That's all I care about, not whether it was historically accurate. Mr. Flynn, even in real life, was a chip off the old block. I love this film. I grew up with it and it still gets an emotional rise out of me when I view it. Its what Custer should have been in my opinion and as a young boy watching this for the first time, influenced me for the rest of my life. Errol Flynn was my hero after I saw this and his WWII Burma movie. Its a shame he's gotten a bad shake from the critics whether now or in the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Errol Flynn's finest moments on screen November 12, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Mammoth is the only way to describe the Raoul Walsh directed tribute to Brig. General George Armstrong Custer, "They Died With Their Boots On". As stated by previous reviewers much of the story as depicted in this film is fiction, but what a story!! It would have to be one of the most entertaining and thoughtfully put together epic productions of this time and th eattention to detail is evident in every frame of this film.
Errol Flynn, at the peak of his career when this film went before the cameras in 1941 had the role of a life time in Custer and indeed he looks remarkably like the illustrations that survive of what Custer actually looked like. Not since the classic "The Adventures Of Robin Hood" had Flynn been handed such a diverse and challenging role as this and once again he proves what a fine actor he could be given proper material to work with. His development from the cocky and raw recruit at West Point through to his fateful encounters with Chief Crazy Horse leading up to the last tragic stand at Little Big Horn where he learns about humility and tolerance for others, provides him with a remarkable acting chore which he handles with aplomb. Despite the fictionised settings and situations you can believe that Flynn is Custer. The film also marked the last time that Errol Flynn was teamed with Olivia de Havilland after a long series of memorable screen appearances together starting with the classic "Captain Blood" They have a magical screen chemistry together and both excell in their work in this film. Olivia de havilland had a unique acting style whereby she could play submissive types while always injecting them with a slic eof independant character that shone through on the screen.

I thought TDWTBO was in B&W......

Some of the Hollywood Historians here, while cautioning readers that this film isn't historically accurate, are woefully inaccurate about Custer.

He was NOT an "often inept commander." He was one of the more briilliant commanders of horse to come out of the Civil War. A master of the *flanking* attack. Who was pivotol in holding off the CSA's rear attack on the Union at Gettysburg. Who was pivotal at Appomattox.

While he certainly would not sacrifice himself and his troops, he did put his career on the line in Spring 1876 when he testified before Congress regarding the Indian Bureau's corruption.

He did not ignore his Indian scouts' advice at Little Big Horn -- in fact, he took their advice, which was to attack the village NOW before it broke up and scattered.

Custer was not "arrogant" -- he was supremely confident in himself and his troops. Would you prefer to serve under a commander who thought otherwise? He was Cavalry -- supreme confidence came with the territory.

The most common terms I come across when contemporaries describe Custer, are "Gentleman." And "soft spoken." The only things he really bragged about were his hunting dogs and his own hunting prowess.

Custer had a great sense of humor and was pretty good at deprecating himself. Flynn manages to portray all of this. If Custer had never existed, he would have to have been invented for Flynn to portray in a movie.

THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON is a rip-snorting adventure, full of humor, pathos honor, and gallantry. Which really was what Custer was about.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cannot believe he died! March 29, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The first time I watched this film was the 5th of January of 1978. I remember the date because was the same day my youngest sister was baptized. I was exciting because Errol Flynn was my favourite actor. I loved Robin Hood, the Sea Hawk . So I was ready to enjoy another movie. But I ended the afternoon crying because I could not believe he died at the end. Of course being seven years old I had no idea who George Custer was. The only thing important for me was that he died.
Believe me it was a shock!
I really think that this film has a great screenplay. the story advances thanks to little things, like the story with his wife and all the strolling matter, his passion for onions , the song Gary Owens, and the antagonism with Tarp. History here is not important. Raoul Walsh creates a world for our hero. With the usual supporting actors who are always the best, like Sidney Greenstreet or Hattie MacDowell.
No one ever played a hero like Errol Flynn. He is too good to be true, but we believe it, because he acts like a hero and moves like a hero. And Olivia de Havilland is as charming as usual. The best couple on a screen. This was their last film together, but what and end!
Enjoy this masterwork of the seventh art. Enjoy it like children, because it is the best way to watch this film.
