Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow (1963)

G 11/21/1975 (US) AdventureFamily 1h 38m

A bold man lives a double life... by day, a country parson... by night, a phantom smuggler!


This Disney drama, originally broadcast as a three-part TV episode, tells the story of a vicar's double life. Outwardly, he is the model of upstanding citizenship and loyalty to an oppressive British government. But he is also a notorious smuggler who uses his ill-gotten gains to benefit his impoverished village.
