Captain Blood

What is it about Errol Flynn that is so off-putting? So close, so very close to being great but there is something in his performances (or persona?) that curdles my appreciation. He should be totally cool, but there's some reek of eww hovering at hand. I suppose if I researched him more I would find out the name of this aura, but I am content to leave it in the movies.
Otherwise, it's all in good fun. Not nearly enough Basil Rathbone and his outrageous accent.
