Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh DVD 1964:
The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh DVD Synopsis and Information: This two-disc DVD set captures all the magic of the original airing on TV in 1964 and the later release of the movie as a feature film for the UK audience. Both versions are a treasure to watch, and the film itself is considered one of Disney's greatest TV movie triumphs.
Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh 1964 DVD has terrific music, story and action. The film follows the unique tale of Dr. Syn, played brilliantly by Patrick McGoohan. Dr. Syn is a priest by day and a pirate called Scarecrow, ala Robin Hood, at night. McGoohan seamlessly drifts back and forth between both characters and has you believing you’re seeing two completely different people. His soothing and caring voice as the priest differs vastly from his broken glass vocals for the Scarecrow…simply astounding!
With the widescreen video transfer and all the supplemental material, this is a wonderful DVD set to own and cherish. Be sure to share this treat with someone who has not had the privilege of experiencing the Walt Disney version of the classic Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh on DVD for a revisiting of old-school yet wonderful TV programming.
Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh 1964 DVD is a film treasure you will enjoy over and over again, and it continues to dazzle 50 years after it was created! Dr. Syn The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh DVD remains a Disney classic and holds up well 50 years after its initial TV run.
