I remeber watching a film when I was about 6 (late 80's) with a "league of extraordinary gentlemen" feel.

1. A guy outruns a spherical bullet and picks up a guantlet from some armour and deflects the bullet from it's intended target.

2. A guy holding onto a cannonball flying through the air lets go and catches onto a cannonball traveling in the opposite direction and is returned to his original start point.

I believe the title of the film is also the name of the main character in the film, it was in colour and "live-action" considering the time of its release.

i reckon it Could be the adventures of baron munchausen from 1988


Not seen it since it was first released so my memory is a bit vague but it does sound like it.

http://youtu.be/5oOK3e53elo - adventures of baron munchausen cannonball ride.

I saw this Baron Munchausen several years after I saw the cartoon. I think it's a french toon, but of course I saw it in English.Anybody know if that's on dvd?
