Jolly Boy ‘Powda’ Bennett has Left the House

21 Aug

The Navy Island Swamp Boys played ‘mento’ at Errol’s legendary Port Antonio parties. They ultimately became the Jolly Boys, a name Errol himself is believed to have coined for them.

… The band lasted for decades, with ‘Powda’ Bennett having a prominent role. Powda, however, has just left the house. Fare thee well, Powda. Say hi to Errol on the other side.

Errol Flynn in “British Agent”

16 Aug

Radio013copy“British Agent” was a 1934 film directed by Michael Curtiz and starring… Leslie Howard. Errol Flynn would not be a household name for another year. He would, however, play the British Agent — on radio. Flynn possessed a beautiful, distinctive speaking voice which contributed mightily to his success as an actor and made him a natural for the radio. In this episode of the prestigious Lux Radio Theater (hosted by legendary director Cecil B. DeMille – the above picture is actually from “Green Light”) Errol Flynn finally plays a secret agent. When he says, “My name is Locke. Steve Locke,” it’s the closest we’ll ever get to hearing him play, well, you-know-who.
