Producers Library Adds Medieval Footage

Los Angeles-based Producers Library has recently discovered the second-unit outtakes from Errol Flynn’s last swashbuckler, 1955’s The Dark Avenger (released in the US as The Warriors). The Dark Avenger was filmed at Elstree Studios in England, using a castle originally built for MGM’s 1952 production of Ivanhoe. The colorful footage includes knights in battle, establishing shots of the castle, archers, jousting, drunken cheer and more! Producers Library has scanned the 7,500 feet of 35mm Eastmancolor CinemaScope negative to 4K.
