Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow Of Romney Marsh 1963
Grandly produced in England, this three-part miniseries is "a story of high adventure and heart," as Walt Disney states in his folksy and avuncular episode introductions.

By day The Scarecrow (Patrick McGoohan, known at the time for his iconic role as John Drake on Danger Man) is Dr. Syn, a well respected preacher in Romney Marsh who helps his people by raising their spirits, but by night he becomes “The Scarecrow” who takes from the king to give to the poor residents of Romney Marsh, or simply helps to smuggle goods to evade the king’s taxation. In these adventures Dr. Syn helps to hide some men who would be captured and tried under sedition for trying to evade the King’s taxation, as well as an American who talks of freedom for the colonies.

This set collects all three one-hour episodes of Walt Disney’s television adventure as well as the celebrated feature-film version in one package. Both versions are a treasure to watch, and the film itself is considered one of Disney's greatest TV movie triumphs.
