The loudest thing this shot is saying to you is LOOK AT ERROL FLYNN’S LEGS. You ought to listen.
It also tells you, perhaps, that this is a rare film in which the male lead is more objectified than the female lead, and they have a passionate romance nonetheless. It clearly indicates that the woman is the one in a position of authority. You can probably guess that the age and power differences between them will be contentious matters in their relationship – as will the fact that these differences even exist.
It is for those reasons that I can say with all seriousness that if you’re not looking at Errol Flynn’s legs, you’re watching the movie wrong.
