I thought maybe I had found something from the Warner archives but I am not sure they did storyboards back then. You had to smoke to get these.

It Dropped into Dodge 77 years ago

14 Apr

A couple days ago I watched Dodge City (1939)— (Lord only knows how many times I have) and a little tid-bit stored in my small tiny pea brain came to the for front, about how Hollywood had broken away from the tradition of premiering films in places such their California theaters – this time they premiered in Dodge City, Kansas, of which, cough-cough! you ready fro this? the city in which the movie was made about – bet you never knew that did you? right! Ok well lets move on my fellow Flynnsters – It premiered there 77 years ago this past April 1st – 1939. I wonder if TCM who broadcast it this past week knew of this – there was no intro to the movie from Robert Osborn or Ben Mankiewicz as there are a couple times a night prior to the movie, so not sure if there were any notion to this premier history? Yet I found it interesting so I research a little and found this article that posted in March of 2015 in the Dodge City Daily Globe.

This movie, to me, is another excellent western that stands the test of time, 77 years strong!

It has also always been considered to have had the best bar brawl scene of movies.

although his performance shines bright, our man Flynn did not like it so much, especailly the part about him being Irish and traveling the world in order to make a fit into a western hero due to his accent; he thought of it as BS and another JW exploitation of swashbuckling hero jumping from ships to road apple streets.

Personally I can understand his wanting dif, but for me; I sur’em glad he mad’em partner….

Oh, Olivia.

14 Apr

Attributed to Olivia, 1978, in a discussion about the most legendary drinkers in film history:

“During filming of “The Swarm”, 1978, a disaster film about killer bees, starring Michael Caine, Henry Fonda, Ben Johnson, Slim Pickens and Fred MacMurray, definitely some guys who knew something about putting them down. One day they were joined for lunch at the Warner Brothers commissary by the quiet Olivia de Havilland. There were complaints that no booze was being served. “That’s because of Errol Flynn”, said de Havilland. “He used to get so drunk he couldn’t work, so Mr. Warner said no more booze.”

The men wanted to hear more about the famous swashbuckler. “Oh my God, that Errol Flynn was something. Do you know he once got so drunk he wagered a film crew $500 that he’d have his way with me.” The men could see she was a lady and the incident must have been embarrassing for her. Olivia grinned mischievously “Oh it was, it was. And you see that tree on the hill out the window. That’s where he won his bet!”
