Up That Rigging, You Monkeys! Aloft!

22 Feb

Further proving Errol’s profoundly unique entertainment importance and popularity can never be fenced in, nor fenced out, here is an account of one way in which his sublime cinematic swordfighting has influenced new generations through video gaming, albeit in an “insulting” manner.

Our Man in Havana

21 Feb

Great article on Graham Greene’s portrait of Havana, coincidental to Errol’s time and adventures there in the late 50’s.

Did Flynn know Graham Greene? Anyone know? (PW? This is America calling) … I imagine so, being that Greene was such a very respected and successful British writer, and avid traveller, who, I believe, spent significant time in Jamaica as well as Cuba during Errol’s years on both islands. Plus, he, like Our Man Flynn, was a noted supporter of early Fidel.

Sunday at and about Sepy’s

19 Feb

Into Ye Little Wood, following in the footsteps of Flynn’s friend Sepy. Coconut Grove, Miami

Per the previous posts and superb Flynnvestigations of baronheinz:

The Barons of the Bodeguita

Into Ye Little Wood we go ...

Ye Little Wood Metal Gate

Not fareth from Ye Little Wood hood, on Calle Oche, featuring the old culture of Errol & Sepy’s old Cuban stomping grounds.
:

Across the calle, a restaurante featuring a painting of La Bodeguita del Medio, the epicenter of Errol & Sepy’s pre-Castro drinking grounds .

For the record, I was unable to get updated photos of Sepy’s fascinating “charging bull” manse because of new neighbors, fencing and security, but I did get to see most of it from a distance of about only twenty yards, and, quite surprisingly, it appears nearly exactly how it did on my last visit, with, as far as I could see, apparently little or no further construction in over two years!

Parrying on from where where PW began and Flynning off of sabreheinz’s Swashbucklin’ Like Flynn

Whether it’s Errol in Robin Hood or Mel in Braveheart, Hollywood has always had a love affair with historical characters who fight with swords ….

Flynn Noir?

10 Feb

Did Errol ever star or appear in any Film Noir? A question, not a quiz. What do you think, Flynnmates?

And from the Flynnvestigative files of our man shangheinz, we have this mystere noir from The Lady from Shanghai.
