I have always wondered why I never liked Royal Flash as much as the novels. If he is too unlikable then the film will fail. It could be a good film franchise. The serious side of the novels was completely missing and what remained was an incredibly silly, one dimensional and utterly uninteresting portrayal of Harry Flashman.
Richard Lester would of course be the perfect director if only he was 30 years younger. He died in He looked as physically imposing as a kitten.
