Peter O’Toole Magnificent In Early Film Role!

18 Feb

I just saw the Warner Archive DVD of the MGM-British film “The Day They Robbed The Bank Of England” (1960). This is a great film with a wonderful cast starring Aldo Ray, Hugh Griffith, Albert Sharpe, beautiful Elizabeth Sellars, and a young Peter O’Toole in only his third film. O’Toole is always worth watching even in bad films but this one is a small masterpiece. Griffith just won an Oscar for “Ben-Hur” (1959) the year before. O’Toole’s very next film was “Lawrence Of Arabia” (1962) for director David Lean!

Errol Flynn’s Grandson Stars in Ojai Play “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?” runs through Feb. 22

Legendary actor Errol Flynn’s grandson Sean is part of the “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” cast in Ojai.

Flynn plays the role of Nick alongside Jessica Stone as Honey. They play the young couple visiting George (Michael Permutter) and Martha’s (Tracy Williams Sutton) home for a faculty party.

The Edward Albee play got its name from graffiti written on a mirror in the bar.

It also conjured up the song “who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.”

Yet Virginia Woolf is a British author and feminist.

The play deals with marriage, relationship and heartbreak.

Director Tom Eubanks said the actors have a wide variety of expertise, including TV, movies and voice-overs.

The play won the Tony and became the film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton earned Taylor an Oscar.

“Woolf” opens the 2015 season and runs through Feb. 22 at the Ojai Art Center, 113 S. Montgomery St., at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights and 2 p.m. Sundays.

Cost is $18 general, $15 for seniors, students and Art Center members. Reservations are available by calling (805) 640-8797 or via www.OjaiACT.org….

In “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Very interestingly, Sean (in the role famously portrayed on film by George Segal) plays “a biology professor”.

G. Errolae, G. Norae & G. Zacae

13 Feb

Professor Flynn is reported to have identified what may have been perhaps dozens of possible new species of marine life on the “Cruise of the Zaca” in 1946. Three of these were said to have been named G. Errolae, G. Norae & G. Zacae, after his loving son, his lovely daughter-in-law, and, of course, the majestic vessel on which he sailed, the Zaca.

Here is some data on Leuckartiara Zacae, discovered and named in 1940, when Zaca still belonged to Templeton Crocker.

Does anyone know anything regarding any formal registrations of G. Errolae, G. Norae & G. Zacae, or any of the other marine life discoveries made during “Cruise of the Zaca”?
