The Carpenters & Errol Flynn

31 Aug

HOW COULD THE CARPENTERS & ERROL FLYNN POSSIBLY BE CONNECTED?? IT ENDED UP BEING A VERY BIG CELEBRATION!

HERE ARE SOME CLUES:

1. We’ve Only Just Begun.

2. Errol was the Star of the Party.

3. There was a Bell Featured at the Occasion, Too.

4. Olivia Didn’t Make It with Errol.

5. Even So, It Still had Plenty of Oomph.

6. Bogie Attended, but without Bacall.

7. Took Place Next to the Arkansas River.

8. This Year is a Major Anniversary.

9. Inspired by Sir David DeWitt.

10. Video Available.

The Black Fox

31 Aug

In 1955, Errol Flynn made his final swashbuckler, “The Dark Avenger”. That same year, Danny Kaye made a film that appeared to be a tribute/spoof of the swashbuckler films of Errol Flynn, complete with Basil Rathbone as the villain, Mildred Natwick (of “Against All Flags”) in a pseudo Una O’Connor-like role, as well as a Robin Hood-like character that seemed written specifically for Errol: The Black Fox. Was Errol offered the role? Probably. Instead, the heroic role was played by Edward Ashley, who received 12th billing. Of course, if Errol had played the role, his name would have been much, much higher in the credits. The film is still very entertaining.(and highly recommended for fans of Flynn) But if it had co-starred Errol Flynn, it would be much more famous.

Hatfield House

29 Aug

Hi all- I found an interesting story about Errol’s visit to Hatfield House  in 1954. This is the Errol I like to think about.

When Hollywood Came to Hatfield

I did search before I posted but I apologise  in advance if this has already been recounted.  Wouldn’t it have been great to take the tour with him!

For whatever reason, The Last Of Robin Hood was not released today in the Chicago area.   Can anyone verify if it opened elsewhere today in the USA?   If yes, can you post some reviews?  Thanks Ralph

Name All Surviving Errol Flynn leading ladies!

28 Aug

In recent years Errol Flynn fans saw the passing of many of his leading ladies from his films.  These include Cornell Borchers, Ruth Roman, Eleanor Parker, Beverly Aadland, and Patrice Wymore.  

Can you EF scholars name all the surviving Errol Flynn leading ladies from his films still alive today?    Here are two hints, one name immediately comes to mind.   Two of the leading ladies were child actresses at the time they worked with Flynn.  

  Thanks Ralph
