This extraordinary historical figure was an “almost certain influence” (together with Captain Morgan – the pirate, not the rum) behind Raphael Sabitini’s “Captain Blood”

New & Improved Jell-O Presents: Drs. Benny & Flynn in Dive Bomber

15 Jun

Very Funny. 10/26/1941. Six weeks or so later Benny could have never aired this Navy farce.

Benny turns down the role of Dr. Flynn, and flies the skies of the Pacific searching for the cure of aviation “Errolembolisms”.

Happy Baz-Day

14 Jun

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

Errol`s congenial counterpart`s birthday shan`t be forgotten. Yesterday he would have turned 123.

In the book “Basil Rathbone: His Life and His Films” a vintage Errol-on-a-role episode is recalled:

The Rathbones gained a reputation for throwing lavish (and expensive!) parties, which the biggest stars in Hollywood attended. At one such party Errol Flynn got drunk, followed a young lady home and passed out on her living room sofa. Later that night, the woman’s father brought the unconscious Flynn back to the Rathbone’s house and dumped him on the lawn. “The next morning, Basil and Ouida were having breakfast on the patio, when the gardener turned on the sprinklers. Who should spring up from the grass, but a hung-over Errol Flynn. The Rathbones sat–mouths agape–as Errol bid them a cheery ‘Good morning,’ then departed for home.”

Here is another worthwhile recount of their encounters:

Enjoy,

Caesar’s Wife with Errol Flynn

14 Jun

Twice it was to be, Errol in Caesar’s Wife. Once with
Talulah Bankhead, in 1936. Once with Geraldine Fitzgerald, ca. 1943. Talulah was replaced by Kay Francis, leaving just Another Dawn. Then, in “43, Errol was said to have been replaced by Cary Grant, but Caesar’s Wife” was never made.
