A new movie about Sean?

“I want things to give my life gravitas, and that’s the movie about Sean Flynn.”

Errol takes Sean and the Tan Man to ELMO

“We met as teenagers in Palm Beach. One night when we were about 15 and both at boarding school, Errol Flynn showed up in New York and took us to dinner. To El Morocco, which wasn’t even a place to go to dinner, it was a nightclub. Sean and I showed up in our best Brooks Brothers blazers,”

Behind the Makeup

By Erskine Johnson

ON THE SETS: EXTERIOR — PRAIRIE — MODESTO, CALIF.

Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland ride to the top of a low ride and pull their horses to a halt. Their eyes travel over the countryside. Flynn, making his debut as a Western hero in Dodge City, lifts his arm, points off into the distance.

“See that herd of buffalo grazing so peacefully over there?” he says to Miss De Havilland.

She nods and her eyes follow his outstretched hand. Then she breaks into an involuntary giggle, spoiling the scene.

Flynn’s “herd of buffalo” is a lone, tired looking cow.

But when the picture is completed, the cow will be a real herd of buffalo. A camera crew traveled all the way to Oklahoma to photograph one of the few remaining herds of the animals that made the nickel famous. There aren’t any in California.
