Errol Flynn’s Watch

01 Oct

La Montre d’Errol Flynn: A new book by François Cérésa:

[O]ne day, in Juan-les-Pins [on the French Riviera, between Nice and Cannes], the then six-year-old writer saw Errol Flynn jump from a boat. For him, this man was Robin Hood, who he loved so much in the cinema. In impeccable French, the Errol Flynn offered the writer’s mother his watch to thank her for a modest bouquet.

This watch became the boy’s passport to a wonderful lifelong trip to the land of Flynn.

This book is a tender homage to this elusive man, a hymn to friendship and girls, to myths that never quite die. A jewel.
