The Big Boodle! In Hell Hot Havana!

14 Aug

www.youtube.com…

1957 Crime drama noir style film starring Errol Flynn, Pedro Armendáriz, Rossana Rory, and Gia Scala, set and filmed on location in Cuba. Once Errol’s grittier performances, at times a bit disjointed, in his reactions, is nonetheless fascinating for its locale. Flynn spent a lot of time in Cuba and some of it is controversial. Here are a few shots towards the ending of the film filmed on the famous El Morro Castle. And a shot of this location as it today, in 2018.

The shots above were made at this location and below we see the same location as it looks today in 2018.

Ahoy Gentleman Tim~

Glad to see you back if only in passing…

Back in ANOTHER day, there was an EQUALLY prolific poster, and one of his particular focuses was REVIEWS.

As it is hard to get ahold of him of late, I will take the liberty of posting one of his MANY efforts, from 2005, and hope you find it as ILLUMINATING as it was back when…

Here’s a very interesting scene, with some very scrappy script.
