Audience Reviews for Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow


The 3 part televised version is far better. Several intertwined plots play out in their entirety in this swash-buckling classic. Great script, strong actors, with near perfect camerawork and editing; though long the tale moves at a good pace and doesn't get boring. McGoohan was perfectly cast as the clever, and unforgiving, vicar.
