THE FLASHING BLADE

"The Swashbuckling adventures of the daring Chevalier de Recci"

I seem to vaguely recall this on tv as a kid, it must have been repeats as it was made in 1967 (unless in was dubbed into English a lot later)

Just watched the first episode and it's quite enjoyable, got a good theme tune too.

Released on the ever reliable Network label.

I've been wanting this tune for ages, but could never track it down and no one had heard of it. Great theme, takes me right back to the early 80s or whenever it was shown

I remember those opening credits and the song so clearly from when it was on TV, not watched the show in years, but that song has always stuck in my head. Would be interesting to watch it again to see how it holds up.
