Movie recommendations for April 15
Here's a fun way to celebrate Tax Day tomorrow:
Why not invite your friends and neighbors to your home for a screening of the two most entertaining, swashbuckling movies ever -- both featuring tax-collectors as the vilest of villains? The Adventures of Robin Hood (starring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, and Basil Rathbone) and The Mark of Zorro (starring Tyrone Power and, again, Rathbone) illustrate vividly the power of the State to tax unmercifully. Both are available for rent almost anywhere. And incidentally, The Mark of Zorro includes what I believe is the greatest swordfight sequence ever filmed, between Power and Rathbone.
