Last of Robin Hood 1

30 Oct

In return for helping, I had the chance to spend 3 days in filming of the movie in Atlanta.  Aadlanda (daughter), Ron (husband), Kevin (step-son) and I were all there and you can find us if you know where to look!  A hint:  in addition to one of the first airport reporters, I’m this guy (yes, they did my hair and clothes like that) with glasses.  The family can attest that Kevin is a real Flynn-fanatic and took this seriously!!!

Otto, Bev and Errol

30 Oct

In response to the September 8th, 2011 post about Otto Reichow:

He was a friend of Flynn’s; maybe more closely in the end than others.  Bev, Errol, Otto and his lady were at the much-publicized pool photos mentioned (minus the Caldough photos at the same pool for LIFE MAGAZINE).  They were having fun when a paparazzi was there taking pics.  Bev turned his attention with pics while they called the police.  Long story short, those pics weren’t for the media.  They were candids.  Here’s Otto with Bev and Errol at the same time.  I have another somewhere that I will dig up from the same day that shows Otto holding Bev up

Thanks!

30 Oct

Glad to be aboard.  Thanks, Dave, for the efforts to keep our friends memory alive.  Just a bit about me beforehand, if OK?  Collected EF “stuff” for decades; ended up meeting some of the Flynn fanatics, including family and one of the greatest guys you’d have the privilege of knowing (Lincoln Hurst).  Long story short:  ended up meeting Woodsie after become enthralled with her story and she turned out to be so much more than you would know.  A loving soul; a doting mother (and grandmother); all the while keeping that mischievous attitude.  She was my friend and, like others, I miss her.  Helped the directors and Woodsie come together to start the “Last of Robin Hood” but she wouldn’t live to see it done.  I’ll share more on her absolutely amazing family later (they are incredible people, by the way), but suffice it to say that I’ve heard great stories and can shed some light “here and there”.  So with that, let’s go!

His Wicket, Wicket Ways

27 Oct

It’s Just Not Cricket that We Don’t Know More About Errol’s Cricket History. From Hobart to Sydney to England to Hollywood – Let’s See How Much of It We Can Discover & Document! He Surely Played in His Hobart & Sydney School Days. In London as a kid, too. Northampton? How About in New Guinea? Then at Griffith Park and Beyond with the Expats of England in Hollywood Cricket Club.

Here’s the HCC in Vancouver: Saturday, July 4, 1936:

Tim Reid, on Jack Marino’s Radio Show!

27 Oct

From the Errol Flynn Mailbag!

Dave can you post this or mention TIM REID will be on my show TONIGHT on the Errol Flynn Blog. Thank you old boy

 

SUNDAY, Oct 26, 2014 at 7PM PST & 10PM EST Jack Marino Warriorfilmmaker Show on www.latalkradio.com on Channel 2

My Guest is Tim Reid, born & raised a Flynn Fan in an predominantly Irish seaside neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. (Only a very short distance from where Harry Eiler grew up, before he made it big and bought Flynn’s place on Navy Island!)

Flynn was King in our neighborhood, who all the girls swooned over, and all the boys wanted to be. Dad & Mom were huge Flynn fans, too, and much like our neighborhood’s Errol & Olivia – Dad being very highly intelligent and athletically gifted, Mom being extraordinarily gorgeous and fun.

Grew up watching Flynn on late night and weekend TV. Captain Blood, Charge of the Light Brigade, Robin Hood, Sea Hawk, Gentleman Jim, They Died With Their Boots On. What boy wouldn’t want to be Flynn?! Fighting the good fight so valiantly AND winning the hearts of all the best looking girls, too! What boy wouldn’t want to be anyone but Errol Flynn!?!

Years later, in the early Eighties, when I moved to San Diego, I became significantly reacquainted with Flynn. Heard stories from sailors & old timers who knew many of his incredible exploits and adventures in San Diego, Old Tijuana, Rosarito, and Ensenada. That led me to read the still astonishing Wicked, Wicked Ways – like nothing I’d ever read before. Truly Flynntastic.

Inspired by all of that, I wrote “In Like Flynn”, which I used last year as the musical track in a video tribute to the 75th Anniversary of Robin Hood.

“In Like Flynn” – 75th Anniversary of “The Advent…:http://youtu.be/dILYf6IOH5g

Working on the In Like Flynn video, I had the tremendous pleasure and good fortune to meet the great David DeWitt, founder of the Errol Flynn Blog. That has opened up a who new world for me, allowing me to learn from and communicate with preminent Flynn fans around the globe.

Based on these wonderful opportunites, and drawing on my experience as a commemorative historian, I am helping to plan and celebrate year-long, around-the-world tributes to Errol’s two greatest pirate films – Captain Blood & The Sea Hawk, which, in 2015, will be in their 80th & 75th anniversary years.

Attached is a photo from the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, during filming of “The First Boys of Spring”, a documentary being released in 2015.
