Nightcrawler

27 May

“Nightcrawler is known for his love of dashing, swashbuckling Hollywood star Errol Flynn and Flynn’s role in Captain Blood in particular. He even made himself look like Flynn back in the days when he used an image inducer to hide his blue, furry form.”

“In Amazing X-Men, the demon Azazel, sailed a pirate ship to conquer heaven, and it was up to Nightcrawler and his swashbuckling friends to defend the afterlife.”

The Flynn-Inspired Masterpiece was released Forty Years Ago Today

“[George] Lucas described Star Wars [to 20th Century Fox executive Alan Ladd Jr.] as an amalgam of Buck Rogers, Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk, two Errol Flynn swashbucklers. Ladd [who had been greatly impressed by American Graffiti] had grown up with the people who starred in and made these movies and was willing to take a chance on Lucas.” Skywalking: The Life and Films of George Lucas, page 136.

Introducing Errol Flynn

24 May

    Hollywood Citizen News – Behold Them Minus Hokum by Peter Pry – December 1, 1934

    Errol Flynn, newly arrived Irish actor, will have to call out the police reserves for protection
    when the local gals discover that he is independently wealthy and doesn’t need to act for a living.
    Flynn has lots of that appeal too, and is a husky specimen. He hewed a fortune out of a gold mine in
    New Guinea, he represented Ireland as a boxer in the Olympic games of 1928, he has braved cannibals,
    is 25, and has never been married! He has only been acting for two years. And he refused the role
    of Oberon in A Midsummer’s Night Dream because he didn’t want to start his film career by
    playing the king of the fairies.

    Los Angeles Evening Express – Harrison Carroll – December 3, 1934

    Actors making their debut in Hollywood usually proceed cautiously. Not so, Errol Flynn,
    the 25-year-old Irishman signed by Warner Brothers. In his biography charge, which all
    newcomers are asked to fill out, Flynn gave some answers that made the boys eyes pop out.
    For one thing, he listed actors as his pet aversion. And there were some hotter ones but
    we can’t go into them.

    Flynn is 6 feet 2, weighs 180 pounds and his hands are calloused. He is a descendant of
    Fletcher Christian , of the crew of the famous British ship, the Bounty. He was once a
    pearl fisherman and he made a good stake for himself prospecting for gold in the heart of
    New Guinea. In 1928, he represented Ireland in the boxing events of the Olympic Games.

    And his description of Douglas Fairbanks Jr. will get a chuckle out of Hollywood. Young Doug,
    he says, has dveloped an Oxford accent so thick that it is hard for even English people to
    understand him.

    Los Angeles Examiner – Lloyd Pantages – January 29, 1935

    Errol Flynn is not only a good looker, but a swell actor, so keep your eyes open for this gentleman.

    Los Angeles Evening Herald Express – Elizabeth Yeaman – February 5, 1935

    Despite the fact that Errol Flynn is an extremely handsome young Irishman and fairly bursting with
    personality, Warners have cast him as a murderer for his film debut here. He will be the villain in
    The Case of the Curious Bride, in which Warren Williams has the lead of the sleuthing attorney.

    Hollywood Citizen News – Elizabeth Yeaman – March 26, 1935

    Errol Flynn, the husky Irish actor at Warners, gets his second film assignment. He will be seen as a
    pirate with Robert Donat in Captain Blood. Now it is uncertain if Jean Muir will have the
    feminine lead.

    Tanikiu Tumas to King Karl Holmberg for the articles and Flynnspiration!
