Jack Marino

Forgotten Heroes

 

Jack Marino is originally from Everett Massachusetts.

This typical working class city at that time was made up
of mostly Sicilians, Irish Roman Catholic Democrats, who by the way –
were all conservatives. He and all his friends were the children of
World War II veterans; it is from this world that shapes his political,
religious and patriotic ideals

As a young boy his Father took him to see all those great
films of the mid 50s and 60s. It was in those darkened temples that he
dreamed of being in the picture business. His inspiration for being an
actor was reading “The Films of Errol Flynn” and “My Wicked, Wicked
Ways”. Other great actors he would read and follow their films, John
Barrymore, James Cagney, Bogey, Ronald Coleman, Orson Wells, Richard
Burton, Charlton Heston, the Duke and Robert Mitchum, the list is
endless. Warner Bros of the 30s & 40s was the favorite of all the
studios with contract directors like Michael Curtiz, Raoul Walsh and
Vincent Sherman, a dear friend and mentor.

A student of the Boston Catholic school system his early
life, he eventually went to Northeastern University in Boston and
graduated with a BS in Criminal Justice. This was his first massive
exposure to the 60s radical malcontent mindset. It was at Northeastern
that he started doing theater in the round. His first Shakespearean
role was Ross in Macbeth. After two years of fencing and acting in
plays he wanted to get into Repertory Theater. Once he was out of
Northeastern, his former teacher/director cast him as Cyrano de Bergerac
in that ambitious play she was directing. Four weeks into rehearsal
the play was shut down for lack of funds. Sounds familiar? This would be
a way of life in the world of independent filmmaking once he got to
Hollywood.

After the play shut down he got into his 1971 Dodge
Charger and headed for Hollywood for six months. While out here he met a
lot of film stars, old prize fighters who knew everyone from the old
days of Hollywood. His plan was to get a feel for the place. He worked
in a couple of films and then returned home to marry his high school
sweetheart. Back in Everett, they both worked for another two years. By
mid '80 they were back living in Los Angeles.

During the next four years he formed two production
companies, had a couple of scripts and was taking them around to all the
studios. In '83 he raised private funds to produce his first
independent film “KILLZONE”. It was one of the biggest hits of the
1985AFM and it changed the entire film market to low budget action
films. In Jan. of '86 he was asked by his DP on KILLZONE to put
together the film, “Hell’s Outlaw” and borrowing a friend’s credit card
he made the film. By the fall of '86 he began putting together the film
project called “FORGOTTEN HEROES”. Little would he know that this film would end up becoming his Calypso in this twenty-year odyssey.

Jack has been married now for thirty-one years to a
green-eyed Irish girl he met in 1969. Their daughter, now married,
recently gave birth to “Identical twin girls”. Their son is in the Army
and recently finished his tour of duty with the 25th INF DIV in a
Striker Brigade in Baghdad, Iraq and is now with the Army Reserves here
in Los Angeles.

By the way, he still has that '71 Dodge Charger, still has
that same girl, and when the world was young, they went everywhere in
that car. He would tell her of his dreams, making films in Hollywood,
living up on Mulholland Farm, having fat kids and watching their
vineyards grow! Now that their kids are out on their own, he is with
his girl again, only he can remember when.

About Spamming Blogs, and Traffic Building

31 Jul

Hallo, Chums! I must thank Tina for spotting several spam comments and letting me know about them recently… spamming a blog is frowned upon by most bloggers or website Admins and doing so will usually get your backlink deleted at discovery. Many times the commet made is generic or some attempt small attempt to make sense in the statement is there but generally, the more comments left in a hurry the more ground the spammer can cover, I guess! Leaving comments with backlinks is, however, IF done properly, a legitimate way to create traffic back to your own websites since incoming links are seen as valuable by search engines, especially if the site linking back to your site is active and has traffic… So what is the difference between spamming a site and getting a legitimate backlink that the owners of websites and their Admins will allow?

The major difference is that the spammer only cares about the link returning to their sites or affiliate pages and not the substance of their comments or the value they may have to the readers of the site they are leaving their comment and backlink on…

An example of a non-spamming, good traffic building comment with a related backlink is AdsMalorca who has left a great comment and returned to make another comment when asked a question. If you are a reader of the blog, or website, with something interesting to add to the content your chances of having your backlink left alone increase dramatically and you are not considered a spammer, too boot!

AdsMalorca's site and comments relate to the blog and so I am happy to leave the links alone!

I have gone forth to create traffic back to this blog in the past and still have backlinks working for us at TCM, for example, that have been there for years and still come up in Google searches!

If you have a website to promote consider visiting blogs and other sites related to your own and leave relevant, interesting comments with a backlink if allowed and enjoy free traffic for years to come. But don't make the mistake many do of jotting down any senseless comment and thinking your backlink will survive for very long…

One of the best ways to create traffic back to your websites and blogs is to do some article marketing. There are article directories on the internet that allow you to place an author's box containing backlinks at the conclusion of your articles. Read and obey their guideslines and rules carefully and start building traffic to your sites that last and articles that get picked up by other websites for use as content which brings you even more traffic over time…

One of the most often spammed articles on the blog has been John's excellent series on Jamaica and the Titchfield Hotel. It's an article series with lots of readers so it draws the attention of those seeking to create a backlink on the blog to their sites quite often…

Most of them get chipped off like barnacles…

I feel cheated!

31 Jul

WTH . . . Netflix had Uncertain Glory, Northern Pursuit and Edge of Darkness available as of August 3.  Now they are sitting in limbo as unavailable.  Just like Linc's book which Amazon now says will be available in October.  One can hope . . .

“Article on 'Rocky Mountain' In Current Issue 'Films Of The Golden Age'”

28 Jul

The brand new current issue of “Films Of The Golden Age” has a long article on the making of Errol Flynn's western “Rocky Mountain” (1950).   It contains many photographs taken on the set of the film and an extensive interview with actor Dick Jones who played the baby-faced Confederate soldier with the cute dog.

I found it to be fascinating and Dick Jones who also made “Virginia City” (1940) with Errol Flynn offers some rare insights on the star.

Best Wishes

Ralph Schiller

Scenes from the Screenplay 'The Fables of Flynn'

20 Jul

Hi, as an avid admirer of the Legendary film actor Errol Flynn I was surprised to find this most amazing blog, which is dedicated to him. I have spent the last six years researching and writing a screenplay based on Errol Flynn's life. a challenge that has been draining, frustrating and overall rewarding. The challenge was how to write a film that captures the true spirit of the man, and to somehow make him human so that audiences can connect. what i didn't want to do was make another art-house film about Flynn, there are a few stinkers out there that do that job well enough. This mythical man has had everything written about him except something justworthy to his legacy. I feel I have accomplished this by writing a screenplay that upholds his legacy as a great actor. I feel it's extremely important for Errol to finally get his props as an actor! Hopefully my script will prove to be successful and maybe even the academy will finally give him a posthumous honorary Oscar, which he no doubt deserves…I can think of only one actor who could play Flynn, Orlando Bloom…So Flynn fans you heard it here first and I'm very proud to share with you all some scenes from my original screenplay based on the life of Errol Flynn   'The Fables of Flynn'

SUPER: HOLLYWOOD 1935

EXT – HOLLYWOOD TENNIS COURTS. DAY

MEDIUM SHOT of the Art Deco bungalows and tennis courts.
Errol is practicing his swing as he hits balls to an empty court. The weather is perfect and the sky stretches crystal blue. Errol hits another ball that bounces to the feet of Lili Damita. Now in her late 30’s, the Former French beauty queen and sexpot of the silent era is dressed to play in a white mini skirt. She smacks the ball back to Errol. He walks up to greet her by the net.
LILI
With all the spare time you have, you should be an excellent tennis player by now.
ERROL
Tell me about it. Contracted to act, but they pay me to play tennis.
LILI
How about a match. What shall we play for?
ERROL
If you beat me I will be your humble slave…for as long as you wish.
LILI
That sounds too easy…besides I don’t need tennis to make you my slave.
ERROL
Please, no whips…had a bad experience once.
LILI
A bad boy, huh? Are those the kind of roles you’re looking for? Bad boy roles.
ERROL
No, I’d like to do some Shakespeare.
Lili laughs.
ERROL (cont’d)
At this point anything will do. I’m rather bored.
LILI
What have you done?
ERROL
Have you seen the case of the curious bride?
LILI
Yes.
ERROL
Remember the part when the detective has to identify the dead body?
LILI
You were the dead body?
ERROL
It’s perfect type casting really.
LILI
Why is that?
ERROL
Because, no one has been under more sheets than I.
They smile at each other.

CUT TO:

INT – JACK’S OFFICE.
Jack plods over pictures and contracts with his Brother HARRY. They need a lead for their film “Captain Blood”
So far no one is working out…
HARRY
Robert Donat is too ill, and Clark Gable too expensive.
JACK WARNER
There’s got to be somebody who can play Captain Blood.
The Secretary brings in some envelops and lays them on the table. Jack notices a paper half folded on her arm with a picture of Lili and Errol. Jack grabs the paper and examines it closely.
JACK WARNER (cont’d)
Isn’t this fella on our payroll?
HARRY
Who? Lili Damita’s boy toy?
JACK WARNER
We’re not paying him for nothing. Lets set up an audition.
HARRY
For Captain Blood? He hasn’t done anything…why?
JACK WARNER
Why not? Let him read…see how he does.
HARRY
Read with who? Bette Davis won’t work with an unknown.
JACK WARNER
So we get another unknown. You know who is an absolute doll.
At the same time they both blurt out…
HARRY
Olivia.
They look at each other like they just solved the puzzle.

FADE OUT.

INT – SCREEN TEST.
Errol dressed in 18th century English attire meets the lovely OLIVIA DeHAVILLAND For the first time. Olivia looks stunning in her dress. They are instantly attracted to each other. They nervously look over their lines together.
ERROL
I find myself speechless. I can’t imagine an 18th century young heiress looking any lovelier.
OLIVIA
Thank you, this from a man who’s the talk of the town. I’m honored. You don’t look bad yourself.
ERROL
Talk of the town for all the wrong reasons. All this about Lili being washed up, and me being her arm candy to attract the gossip rags. It’s really not fair. To her at least…personally I don’t care what they write about me, as long as they spell my name correctly. It isn’t what they say about you, it’s what they whisper. At least you have done a few films already, even Shakespeare! A Midsummer Night's Dream…I’ve seen at the Roxie.
OLIVIA
So you were the one!
They laugh.
ERROL
I’m very fond of Shakespeare. I too did Midsummer Night's Dream, in London. I played Lysander.
Olivia thinks he’s joking.
OLIVIA
Stop it, Errol. Did you?
ERROL
How now, my love! Why is your cheek so pale? How chance the roses there do fade so fast? Ay me! For aught that I could ever read, Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth; But, either it was different in blood, Or else misgraffed in respect of years.
Olivia is speechless.
OLIVIA
Wow…I would love to do Shakespeare with you some day.
ERROL
That would be a treat, but what do you make of this film?
I heard the Warners are already in over a million dollars so far. Have you seen the sets?
Olivia nods with astonishment.
ERROL (cont’d)
I thought I was reading for a bit part, and when they started to dress me they kindly told me…I was to play the lead.
Olivia grabs his hand.
OLIVIA
Me too! I don’t know what Jack Warner is thinking!
The STAGE HELP interrupts them, handing them their papers.
STAGE HELP
We’re ready.
Errol and Olivia look over their lines nervously, as they begin the dialogue.
OLIVIA
Captain Blood! I thought you had gone, You can’t be here…my uncle has just returned.
ERROL
Yes, I know.
OLIVIA
You know? What are you going to do?
ERROL
Just stay here.
Olivia with passion…
OLIVIA
You know that’s impossible, he swore he’d hang you.
ERROL
No he won’t, I have always been bad luck for your…
Errol breaks character smiling as he flubs a line. Olivia smiles as the ice is broken.

The stage help interrupts them.
That was good, are we ready to try again?

You know? What are you going to do?
ERROL
Just stay here.
OLIVIA
You know that’s impossible, he swore he’d hang you.
ERROL
No he won’t, I have always been bad luck for your uncle.
OLIVIA
You don’t know the dreadful things he’s done, his whole life he’s been searching for you!
ERROL
Well, now he’s found me.
OLIVIA
You must leave, please save yourself…for my sake.
ERROL
For your sake! Why would I do that? Isn’t it true you hate me! Or do you love me?
OLIVIA
I’ll hide your bags…I’ll find a way…
Errol grabs her, holding her close.
ERROL
You love me don’t you? Don’t you?
OLIVIA
Who else would I love…

Errol refuses a seat and prepares for the worst.
JACK WARNER
Listen, Flynn, there’s one thing I won’t have around this lot and that is drinking! I don’t drink, and my brothers don’t drink. Only a bum will drink when he’s working, and you can’t get the job done well if you do. So there will be none of it, will there Flynn? Good, now get back to work.
Errol begins to walk out as Jack stops him.
JACK WARNER (cont’d)
Just a minute now. There’s something I want you to see.
Jack leads him over to the window where they see the hundreds of people working on the film.

LILI
Looks like you’re finally a star. An overnight sensation. Good, now you can start supporting me for a change.
ERROL
It does feel good. Maybe now I can show them how Shakespeare is done.
LILI
Honey, they are going to make you do ten more films like the one you just made. It’s a recipe for making money, they don’t care if you fancy yourself an artist.
ERROL
If the films keep making money I will do whatever the public wants of me…but eventually they have to let me act.
LILI
I shouldn’t be telling you this, but I heard MGM is casting Romeo today.
ERROL
Romeo?
LILI
Yes, I know you would be perfect. But seriously, I heard that John Barrymore is involved.
ERROL
My hero.

It is the famous actor JOHN BARRYMORE.
JOHN BARRYMORE
Ah, a glorious day is it not?
ERROL
Magnificent.
John points to the space on the bench beside him, and invites Errol to sit with a hand gesture.
JOHN BARRYMORE
Have I seen you before, my friend? Perhaps in some other life? Wait! I know who you are! You’re the young bastard I’ve seen in the rushes the other day. Captain Blood, huh? The new cock of the walk. You remind me of Navarre. Do you mind if I call you Navarre?
Errol is all smiles.
ERROL
Not at all.
JOHN BARRYMORE
Glorious country, California. Too good for these cloddish bastards who inhabit it.
ERROL
I myself prefer the far East.
JOHN BARRYMORE
Ah, yes, Navarre, what you say reminds me of a place where I was once strangely content. Kualalumpur, Malaysia.
Never shall I forget that whorehouse. It was one of much integrity.
ERROL
Never been there, but I am fond of the ones in Marseilles.
JOHN BARRYMORE
When you go to a house of joy, Navarre, always take the madam. The quality is better, and the price more reasonable.
They finally explode in laughter, as a VOICE from behind says softly.
VOICE
Mr. Barrymore sir, they are waiting for you on the set.
John rises to his feet swaying with dignity.
Errol stands up as well, and extends his hand.

Navarre, our talk was most illuminating. We shall see more of each other, correct?
ERROL
I’m absolutely certain of that.

August 7th – 24 hour marathon of Errol's movies on TCM

17 Jul

Hello Everyone!
I wonder if anybody on this Blog knows if August 7th is a
special date in Errol's life or carrier for TCM to put on this 24 hour
marathon of his movies?


They will show 11 movies.

Gentleman Jim

Robin Hood

Virginia City

Uncertain Glory

Edge of Darkness

San Antonio

The Sea Hawk

Don Juan

The Prince and the Pauper

Object Burma

The Green Light

I just saw yesterday “Cry Wolf” and July 27th they will show “The Charge
of the Light Brigade” and “Essex”

TCM shows a lot of Errol's movies all year round, which is great!

PORTLAND: THE OTHER JAMAICA, by Ken Roueche

15 Jul

Received an email from Ken Roueche:

Good Afternoon:
 
My latest book has just arrived from
the
printer.  PORTLAND: THE OTHER JAMAICA chronicles the stories from many
of
the dreamers, schemers and crusaders who, over the past 400 years, have
left
their imprint on this most remarkable parish.  Included are over 45
images,
including the works of local artists and many historic photographs that
have
never before appeared in print. 

Further details are available on my web
site at www.portlandtheotherjamaica.com

 
Given that many of you are unfamiliar
with my work
as a writer and publisher, I am offering a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. 
Purchases
can be made through Paypal, or if you prefer to pay by cheque or money
order
please contact me directly.
 
To my friends and family in Jamaica,
please be
patient. Planning is underway for a printing in Kingston, and the real
book launch will be in Porti in October.  You will also be able to make
your purchase at a Special Jamaican Price!
 
Yours truly,
 
Ken Roueche
