Who would have made the best Captain America (and Red Skull) over the years?
1950s: Basil Rathbone
And who better to portray a Communist era Red Skull tan the great Basil Rathbone, who did such an amazing job playing Errol Flynn's foil in "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938). It would have been a treat to see Heston's piercing eyes beneath Cap's signature cowl while he busted up the Red menace in the name of America. And yes, this Captain America would have carried a sidearm.
