“In this light-hearted interview, swashbuckling Hollywood star Errol Flynn talks with John Ellison about the filming of his current movie, which recounts the story of folk hero William Tell, and explains that he is in London to see whether anyone can lend him the £50,000 he needs to complete it.”

As Flynnmates know:”Errol was unable to raise the money he needed for his William Tell project and the film was never finished.”

    Come December of that year, Errol will have the 50 grand, but also have become father once again and have his car seized by Italian authorities (Thank goodness he had another one). So with his stockings depleted, it would take two years for any serious effort to resume the filming of Will Tell.

    Too bad but I thought he needed much more than that. Amazing he was not able to call in a favor from someone. Even Jack Warner. Oh well.
