Beginning at 6 a.m. on June 20, the always-terrific Turner Classic Movies will screen seven binge-worthy titles starring the late swashbuckling star Errol Flynn.

Dust off your DVR, put up your feet, and prepare to enjoy Flynn at the peak of his talents in these titles, as listed in Now Playing: A Viewer’s Guide to Turner Classic Movies:

“Rocky Mountain” (1950), with Flynn and Patricia Wymore in a frontier drama about a Confederate troop attempting to build an army in the West. (6 a.m.)

“The Master of Ballantrae” (1953), with Flynn and Roger Livesey in a story of a Scottish lord leading a rebellion against the British. (7:30 a.m.)

“Adventures of Don Juan” (1948), with Flynn and Viveca Lindfors in a favorite about the famous ladies man who saves his queen from treason. (9 a.m.)

“San Antonio” (1945), with Flynn and Alexis Smith in a frontier favorite with a reformed rustler tracking cattle thieves. (11 a.m.)

“They Died With Their Boots On” (1941), with Flynn and Olivia De Havilland in the romanticized story of Custer’s last stand. (1 p.m.)

“The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex” (1939), with Flynn and Bette Davis in a historical epic about how Elizabeth I faced the destruction of her kingdom due to her attraction to the Earl of Essex. (3:30 p.m.)

“Captain Blood” (1935), with Flynn, De Havilland and Basil Rathbone in a classic title (it ranks up there with “The Adventures of Robin Hood” in the Flynn top-title list) about a doctor who escapes from prison and becomes a pirate to survive. (5:30 p.m.)

Mail Bag! Early Australian Film History: Marelle Flynn!

25 May

Dear David DeWitt

I am working on some early Australian film history and wondered if you or your blog associates might have some information particularly concerning Lily Mary (Marelle) Flynn.

According to another source she was an extra in a 1925 silent film, filmed at the Savage River in Tasmania and in Melbourne, entitled “Jewelled Nights” produced by Louise Lovely and based on  a novel by Tasmanian writer Marie Bjelke Petersen. I have only found one mention of Marelle Flynn as an extra  and would really like to know if there is more substantive evidence and whether she was filmed in the Tasmanian setting or in the Melbourne society setting.

Given that it was 1925, Errol Flynn would still have been in school at the Hobart High School. Further given that his father, Professor Theo Flynn was a great hiker, also wonder whether he and Errol might have ventured to Waratah, Savage River in NW Tasmania for the filming.

I’ve ordered up the books on Flynn to see if there is any mention, however, thought that you and your associates might have information.

Kind regards
