Movie Info

Capt. Harry Flashman (Malcolm McDowell) is an unapologetic rogue who'll stop at nothing to advance himself. In London, he seduces Lola Montez (Florinda Bolkan) away from Otto von Bismarck (Oliver Reed), but finds he doesn't get off scot-free. As part of a sketchy plan to unite Germany, von Bismark in turn forces Flashman to impersonate a Prussian aristocrat so as to seduce a certain strategic duchess (Britt Ekland). Flashman succeeds, but is eventually exposed and flees for his life.

    A damn good romp, what.

    Malcom McDowell and Olver Reed, now theres a comedic duo. Really enjoyed this comedy from 1975. A little surprised more people havent seen in it, given the quality. Has a fairly complex plot, but keeps the laughs in regular supply. Several bad ass sword fighting scenes. Malcolm McDowell is really funny throughout. Alan Bates also definently has his moments. Florinda Bolkan is hot. All in all a really good time. More people need to see this one.

    What a fabulous romp! It centres around the perils & adventures of the despicable Harry Flashman (yes, he who made Tom Brown's schooldays such unspeakable hell). Featuring a stellar cast (including Malcolm McDowell, Alan Bates & Oliver Reed) who play it for laughs more than drama, this slapstick tale of derring-do is faultlessly directed by Richard Lester. It is patently obvious when watching, just how much fun everybody was having. And this only increases one's enjoyment of the film. Watch it in the spirit it was intende & I promise that you will enjoy it.

    'Royal Flash' Shows Spark Another slow starter, and with a treadbare plot, but still provides enough entertainment to forgive its flaws. Who wouldn't enjoy a roguish Malcolm McDowell attempting to impersonate a German duke against his will after being kidnapped by a sinister Oliver Reed? Highlight is a side-splitting attempted rescue of the real duke held prisoner in a castle dungeon which includes a memorable comedic swordfight in the spirit of the Elwes vs. Patinkin throwdown later exhibited in The Princess Bride.
