“THE GREATEST SEA ADVENTURE OF ALL TIME GETS UNDERWAY!” (IN COLORADO)

www.eventbrite.com…

“Off the Hook Arts celebrates film and music of the 1930’s and 40’s in their Fourth Annual WinterFest week! We’re featuring two great composers that fled Europe, settled in Hollywood and helped bring film to where it is today through their additions to film scores. Join us for the full Hollywood classic movie, The Sea Hawk, featuring Errol Flynn in his swashbuckling splendor and film score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. But first, get a brief introduction about the significance of this film and composer from our host, modern day Hollywood film score composer and Assistant Professor of Digital Media Composition and Music Theory at UNC Ludek Drizhal.”

“Errol Flynn left Hollywood yesterday for a two-week vacation in Boca Raton.”

When Flynn visited Boca in those days, a town of only a few thousand residents before WWII, he was known to visit the world famous Boca Raton Resort, Cap’s Place restaurant and casino (where FDR and Churchill dined during there planning their taking down of Hitler and Hirohoto),and the legendary Delray Arcade Tap Room, all still here and all pictured below. He also fished off the coast of Ft. Lauderale, and is said to have also liked hunting in the Everglades.
