Don't know if you read it before, but I found this nice article about Errol and Olivia:

My EF logo designs

26 Oct

Hi fellow Flynn fans!

Attached are my Errol Flynn logo designs. I used two Adobe programs to make them : Photoshop and Illustrator. You might recognize the headshot of Errol used in the designs…it’s a rather “well-known” side profile shot of Errol (it’s the same one used on the cover of Robert Matzen’s new E&O book), and one that I particularly like, so I decided to incorporate it. I used a flag because I thought it would make a good “backdrop” and because flags are often seen flying on the masts of boats, yachts, and ships. So I created “Flynn flag” logos, complete with Errol’s image, his famous signature (which is beautifully scriptive, in two different styles), and Errol’s square-ish question mark symbols (which of course he created for himself, to symbolize his own life). I kept the image of Errol in grayscale, and used only 3 other colors in the logos: black, blue, and green. Why those 3 colors? Well, black is reminiscent of a pirate flag, blue is for the water/ocean/sea which Errol loved, and green is for the lush jungles/trees/vegetation Errol encountered in his travels (New Guinea, Jamaica) and was often surrounded by. Not to mention it’s also Robin Hood’s signature color as well. So that describes Errol Flynn logo designs 1 and 2.

The third logo design resembles the previous two, except that this one has Errol’s initials in place of his profile. Otherwise, same flag, same question mark symbols and same 3 colors used. And the fourth logo design has the same 3 colors, same EF initials, same question mark symbols, but this time I used a shield instead of a flag. A shield to symbolize Errol as the warrior/soldier/hero, with a “bulls-eye” pattern of circles in the center of the shield (to symbolize an archery target; Errol as archer).

So these are my four logo designs…I hope you like them. I may create others, I don’t know yet. I was actually thinking about creating a logo design (or two) for Errol and Olivia, together — an Errolivia logo.

A sad note…

24 Oct

Hello everyone,

I recently acquired a number of old German film magazines and with them some, as I thought, rather rare pictures. I will post some more Berlinale news soon, but I also came across this rather sad side note. It is a picture of Deirdre and Rory at the funeral of their father. The caption says that they have been so much “Hollywood treated” (I don't know how to translate this in another way) that even at this sad occasion, they keep smiling for the cameras and forget why they're actually here…

The Italian Errol!

17 Oct

Have you ever heard Errol speaking Italian?  Here it is – hilarious! The fire in his words – just divine, all of you must watch it – I love it! 
He starts speaking in about the middle of the video. I know it isn't him speaking, but a worthwhile minute of your time and you really can see his fabulous acting!

Best regards to all of you,

Errol Flynn Fire Sale! Rare Digital Repro Items on DVDs! Ebay!

16 Oct

Here is an interesting Errol Flynn auction item over at eBay containing some of Flynn's radio shows, including the famous Joe E Lewis Roast in which Flynn speaks the words “In Like Flynn” and makes a statement in adult terms that floors all the professional comedians in the audience whom for years had been making fun of him…

Ten folders of digitally reproduced items! Scrapbooks, newspaper articles, FOH stills, Flynn's will, FBI files, and the files of several of his friends including Herman F Erben, and the tough to find copy of Flynn's Playhouse 90 performance in WITHOUT INCIDENT…

It's a genuine ERROL FLYNN FIRE SALE!

Worth checking out…

Remember when we discussed the Errol/Patrice wedding album? It's still/again for sale, and I just discovered a strange letter by the same seller. Check it out for yourselves:
