Disney's Swamp Fox

The inspiration for the Emmerich movie The Patriot this clip of this tv series from the late 50s is worth looking at. Features the Swamp Fox song (if you dare play it) which will rattle around in your head for a good few minutes I can tell you. Based on the life of Francis Marion it had Leslie Nielsen and Patrick Macnee in it. Apparently it was banned - the series that is - in Canada for portraying the British and Tories as too villainous.
