Just for fun...Son of Captain Blood

Recommended Posts

I watched this movie recently and got some serious Guybrush vibes off Sean Flynn when he appeared in this short black waistcoat. Doesn't he look SO Curse of Monkey Island?!

 

He also appears in a lace up shirt like in MI1.

 

At the time I really wanted to point this out to someone...thanks to the forum, now I can! Yippee! ;)

When you look at how much influence old films had on a game like Grim Fandango (Casablanca being the obvious one) it's possible that they took inspiration for Guybrush from old films too :) Awesome..

That's a good pull. The second image especially feels like it was direct inspiration for the final shot of MI1...

 

Jake Rodkin on Twitter: "EGA Monkey Island 1 continues to be good.… "

 

and then got pushed even MORE towards that reference for the VGA repaint...

By the way, people should check out the original CAPTAIN BLOOD if they count themselves any sort of fan of old-fashioned swashbucklers. It is the first of the eight match-ups between Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland, and there are some who would tell you it is superior even to THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD.

The original novel by Rafael Sabatini is also excellent. Tim Powers has cited it as a major inspiration for On Stranger Tides.

I'm rewatching the DoubleFine Adventure documentary at the moment and Tim says how they watched movies like that as research for MI:
