From my most recent trip. Photo #3 features the lovely Mrs. Florczak posing in the same spot as our Mr. Flynn.
There will be more to come from this film as well as from “Kim” which was also shot in Lone Pine. Enjoy!
The article titled More Sad News for Flynn Fans was removed at the request of its Author, Xaviant.
I emailed Xaviant who tells me he was in the process of deleting his comments about Pat when he discovered the blog was down due to bandwidth problems. This is usually caused by the file size of pictures uploaded to the blog. It may be time to remind people that digital cameras produce large file sizes and to resize them to something smaller before uploading to the blog. In any case, Xaviant was speaking in the heat of the moment, and once he realized his remarks were a bit over the line he intended to delete them himself. We have comment guidelines to refer to, btw. His comments were over the top but who hasn't felt a rush of frustration like this? With all of the work he has done on his screenplay it is natural to have intense feelings about your project. However, there are folks here who know that many good projects have met roadblock after roadblock on the way to success. The difference between success or failure is often a matter of dogged determination and perseverance…
I have left the comments that followed this article in place to show blog readers what happened and what we are all about when we go off the rails a bit. Xaviant is a valued Author and this really is a small blip on the radar screen, as far as I am concerned.
So we move on from here with smiles on our faces, and the wind in our hearts!

I am back in town for a while I am gallivanting as it is summer and we have a wonderful one. I see I have to catch up a lot but first things first.
Your link to Jack's Radio Show with Rory Flynn is not working so here is a replacement.
All the best to you,
Oh my, now I can't shut up. But I've had a question bugging me for a while that one of my fellow Flynnians might be able to answer. On TCM recently, Ben Mankiewicz related that William Wyler had approached EF to play Monty Clift's role in the Heiress. I hadn't heard this before and was curious about the reference. Does anybody know the source?
As promised, here's the link for Kehr on EF's westerns.
www.nytimes.com…. Great photo of Alexis, EF and the fine Warner character player John Litel.
Strange that Warner Home Video still hasn't released Silver River to the domestic market. I picked up my copy…in France! It's well worth seeing. EF and Sheridan play off each other well, and the film has a great score by Max Steiner.
Greetings, fellow Flynnians! What a privilege to be a part of David's great site. For my maiden post, I'm attaching Dave Kehr's recent review of the Errol Flynn Adventures boxed set in the New York Times. In my opinion, Kehr is one of the best writers on classic film today, and this review more than supports my point. As long as I have been watching Our Man Flynn, I had never considered Raoul Walsh's role in bending the heroic Flynn persona, making it more quietly human and believable during the war, especially after the rape acquittal.
Kehr also wrote an excellent review of the Errol Flynn western set that came out a couple of years back. I'll try and find that link for posting.
Best to all, Sean.
