A Day in the Life of Flynn – January 4, 1940

“ILLEGAL PASSAGE”

“ERROL FLYNN NAMES PALS IN HIS ORIGINAL PLAY WRITTEN FOR FILM”

Errol Flynn has drawn from his own private circle of cronies for many of the characters of his new original screen play entitled Illegal Passage, intimates of the Warner star have disclosed.

One, for example, is named “Big” Thompson. He is a former Texas cowboy, rough and tough, but with a heart as big as his frame. He’s the principle character’s best friend. Another of Flynn’s closest friend’s is Guinn (Big Boy) Williams, former Texas cowhand turned motion picture actor. And the description fits like a glove.

Another character bears the name of Bud Ernest. Friends pointed out that Flynn’s flying companion and his close friend for many years is Bud Ernst, former stunt flyer and now a radio promotion executive.

Several other characters of the story – the nature of which is being kept a close secret – bear striking resemblance to other members of Flynn’s intimate circle. There is even a comic, friends say, by the name of John Byer, who might be John Meyer, Flynn’s demon promoter pal.

Flynn’s story is now being read by Warners.

Flynn River

28 Jun

You always rolled in style
And always brought a smile …

Oh dreammaker, you heartbreaker
You were off to see the world,
And there was such a lot of world to see …

June 28, 1935

Harrison Carroll – Los Angeles Evening Herald Express

Lili Damita’s new groom, Errol Flynn, is versatile to no end. In addition to acting for Warner pictures (he has a good chance for the lead in Captain Blood) the young Irishman is writing a book about his experiences in the interior of New Guinea.

Seems he once went there on commission of the British government to promote peace between the tribes of aborigines. And, while there, was lucky enough to make a gold strike and have a river named after him.

All in addition, of course, to his prowess as an athlete. Flynn was the amateur boxing heavyweight champion of Ireland and competed in the 1928 Olympic Games. And he’s an ace at tennis, too, which is Hollywood’s favorite game.

More On In Like Flynn

See photo of “Errol” on the “Sirocco” from Luke’s In Like Flynn.

Summary below is extracted and adapted from the above-linked article by Cheryl Goodenough.

“The movie stars Australian actor Thomas Cocquerel, from Red Dog: True Blue and Kidnapping Mr Heineken, as Errol Flynn.

It is being co-produced by Flynn’s 41-year-old actor, writer and producer grandson Luke Flynn.

A 100-person film crew set up at Cleveland’s Raby Bay to shoot In Like Flynn.

Directing In Like Flynn is Australian Russell Mulcahy of Highlander, Teen Wolf and Resident Evil: Extinction fame.

Mr Mulcahy said the film was taking full advantage of Moreton Bay at its best.

“The first time I came here on the location survey to Cleveland, I fell in love with it,” he said.

“It’s perfect – it’s exactly what we need.

“How could any director not enjoy this part of the world? It is stunningly beautiful, from sunrise over the water to sunset.”

In June 2015, Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp put Cleveland on the filming map.

Redland City is fast earning a reputation within Queensland, Australia and overseas as a great place to make great television and movies.

The city was recently recognised at the premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on the Gold Coastfor its welcoming community, film-friendly council and its spectacular water-based locations.

Scenes from Flynn’s exploits in Papua New Guinea were shot in the Mount Tamborine area.

Set in the 1930s, In Like Flynn tells the story of Flynn in his twenties when he discovered a map on a dead prospector while serving as a guide for a Hollywood producer in the jungles of Papua New Guinea.

In Sydney, Flynn rounds up a crew, who steal Sirocco, a yacht belonging to Chinese opium smugglers and they voyage up the Australian east coast.

Mr Mulcahy said In Like Flynn was an “honest seat of your pants true life action adventure about a group of guys lead by Flynn, who barely make it through some incredible situations”.”

More in the papers from and about Barbara”

“Did Mrs. Evans have any comments on world affairs? Yes. George will just kill me when he finds out where I’ve been.

Sounds like George might be kind of a poor sport. For Castro the warfare is over. For Errol it may just be the beginning.”
