Dear fellow Flynn fans,

let`s just post here pics of Errolesque actors that wore the must have moustache at least for a while, trial & error.

Enjoy,

Here’s some Mustache Ado About Nothing, heinzster:

It just dawned on me, redbaronheinz, that we should pencil in these pals of Errol. Though no one topped the tonsorial sublimity of Flynn, these three expatriates of England gave it the old Hollywood try.

Kevin Kline seems to prefer the look for his next Broadway role, too. Fitting the part he will play, and older actor with his own wicked ways …

Nils Asther! A great addition, Maria! – with a fascinating connection to Errol, before he landed in LALALand.

Was Errol in Abdul the Damned?

An Abdul the Damned close-up from Tina. Thank you, Tina, for your superative work on this and so much other Errolian research!

Nils Asther also appeared with Lili LaLa Damita in “The Golden Butterfly” directed by Michael Curtiz….small world! No one can wear the moustache like Errol tho!

Further proof of the futile pursuit of the Flynnmeister’s heroically hirsute superiority. Little Richard’s pilosity in particular has too much velocity. Looks like he jumped back in the alley with long tall sally at least a few too many times.

And the upper lip oddity below should have been deloused and demoused long ago, forever extinguished from Water’s World, and ours.

As you surely know sirhirsuteheinz, there are mousts to have and mousts to have not.

Some truly make one blue. … Whistle along with Hoagy & Bacall:

In case you were wondering what the connection Tom is with Errol: Tom Conway (brother of George Sanders)starred in The Falcon. I have copied from a website: “With his Bond-like resilience and devil-may-care banter, the debonair amateur sleuth known as the Falcon makes the viewer feel reassured and protected as he leads us down those mean streets in search of answers—and gorgeous dames.” “Conway’s work in the Falcon deserves the Errol Flynn Prize for Formulaic But Consistently Awesome Performances. I’d also award him the Ronald Colman Cup for Fine Moustaches. If anybody ever looked more badass holding a teacup, I’ve… Read more »

According to this, hispidheinz, bacteria and mustard gas helped pave the way for Flynn and all the pencil-thins. But it was all kicked downhill again come the Great Depession.

Oh, I wish I had a pencil-thin musache
Then I could be anyone I wanted to be,
Maybe suave Errol Flynn or the Sheik of Araby.

In the Footsteps of Errol, here’s Austria’s “Turkish Delight” showing some Flynn.

Dear Sir Shang, Inspired by the sedulity of this thrilling thread of yours, I have assiduously searched my ever-more-musty memories for evidence of who it was that first inspired our suitably hirsute Hollywood hero to wear a pencil-thin moustache. After diligent deliberation – using the tried and true investigative method of timeline analysis – Voila! I now know! First, it must be established that fearless thespian Flynn was essentially always hairless above the lip prior to Captain Blood. (Except, of course, in that Curious film in which he played the maniacal Mr. Moxie, when he wore that Magic Marker-thick monstrosity… Read more »

But then, as can be seen in the link below, Flynn charged forward after Blood with his famous pencil-thin.

So, what happened between Blood and Charge? … Who with a(n) (in)famous mustache did Errol meet for the first time in between Blood and Charge??

Three Clues: Lili was there. So was another famous foreign actress. It did not happen in the U.S., nor overseas.

(This is all in humor, of course, Sir Shang, but historically accurate nonetheless.)

Many would say this circa-’35 moustache that Errol saw was much more a moust-not-have than a moust have.

Report this comment

This (in)famous moustache that Errol saw for the first time in ’35 was connected to a woman with whom he allegedly once had an affair. He reportedly gave vague details of his brief, but memorable relationship with her, but did not include any mention of an affair in My Wicked Wicked Ways.

They first met in late 1935. He later described her as exotically beautiful, with long dark hair, and piercing eyes. At their first meeting, she wore see-through clothing with nothing underneath.

Are you sure, Sir Shang? I think Tyrone P. may have loaned his unibrow to Senorita Frida, who, in turn, loaned her pencil-thin to Mr. Flynn. Then Kahlo trotted off with Trotsky. Maybe Breshnev was inspired by her too??

Note to Professor Heinz:

“[S]tudent nurses learning how to bandage the torso of a mannequin sporting an Errol Flynn-like moustache.”
