Maureen O’Hara and Paul Hubschmid
I have a very, very special place in my hearts for Swashbuckling movies. Absolutely love them! I tend to think of them as Westerns on the Sea and enjoy watching them almost as much as I do my beloved Westerns. Swashbucklers are fun, colorful, don’t take themselves (or life) too seriously, are never boring, and are more than happy to sweep you off to a little escapism.
What more could you ask for from a movie?! I mean, maybe a foot massage and mug of hot tea, but aside from that.
Bagdad (1949, directed by Charles Lamont) is a particularly good Swashbuckler- very colorful and lots of fun. The cast includes the stunningly beautiful and talented Maureen O’Hara, Paul Hubschmid, Vincent Price, and John Sutton.
