The Sword of Villon – Errol’s Last Swashbuckler

11 Nov

Thank You to Ralph for the Information & Inspiration Leading to This Post!

The Sword of Villon – Errol’s Last Swashbuckler – Filmed for TV at Hal Roach Studios in 1956.

Based on the Life and Adventures of Renowned 15th Century French “Poet, Thief & Patriot” Francois Villon.
www.britannica.com…

Along the Lines of The Adventures of Robin Hood & Don Juan. Sounds Perfect for Flynn!

Hal Roach Introduced the Show with the Following:

A Tale of Derring-Do
Of Lords and Ladies
– and Scoundrels, too

*Oh, yes – and Nazis by Air. But, Please, No One Tell Chuck the Cluck Piggyham’s Estate! Last thing needed is a chapter on how Errol almost ended the careers of Benny Hill and The Beatles via V1 Doodlebugs.

Shoreham Hotel, where Errol Flynn …

09 Nov

… met Earl Conrad to go over the galley’s of My Wicked, Wicked Ways, and played a trick on Conrad by having Woodsie and some teenage girls draped all over the rooms busily editing pages of the book with pencils! Conrad predictably blew his top while Errol innocently asked What’s wrong, old boy?

Alibris.com for Errol Flynn Movies!

05 Nov

If you are looking for copies of Errol Flynn’s movies, I noticed Alibris.com… has a selection at reasonable prices (look for the yellow See All from button) including Kim, Master of Ballantrae, The Big Boodle, Mara Maru, and Green Light, among others that are becoming harder to find. The classics are there, too!

A lot of great Flynn book choices are there, too, including From a Life of Adventure: the Writings of Errol Flynn.

Worth looking at …
