The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh 12/21/19
Walt goes radical, or as radical as the Disney brand could go. In the 1760s, an HRPMS (hobgoblin rogue phantom marsh smuggler) called The Scarecrow gives His Majesty’s forces a run for their money. We kids loved the theme song, the spooky cinematography, and especially Patrick McGoohan’s terrific voice and scarecrow disguise — he’s sort of a Masked Superhero 200 years before Watchmen. This is a Disney Club offering, so good luck getting a copy if you’re not a member. It’s not the feature cut-down but all three shows beautifully remastered in widescreen and color, sayeth the review of CineSavant’s in-house HRPMS, Charlie Largent. On Blu-ray from The Disney Club.
