Sex in the South Seas — Cinema & Symposiums

09 Aug

“The Biggest Tiki Party on the Planet”

With a discussion of In the Wake of the Bounty, and other Bounty films, et al.

Beginning today in San Diego

Friday 11:30am-12:30: Sex in South Seas Cinema

Ed Rampell is an L.A.-based full-time freelance writer and author. In this titillating symposium, Rampell will expose everything you ever wanted to know about Sex in South Seas Cinema. The film genre that offers the allure of South Seas sirens, naked nymphs, bronzed gods and goddesses, sensual dance and the first Western-style kiss on the lips.

Definition of the South Seas Cinema Genre:

[T]he element that distinguishes South Seas Cinema is its depiction of paradise on earth.

[T]he silent films “Tabu” and “Moana of the South Seas” as early examples of the genre. He will be discussing all four of the “Mutiny on the Bounty” films in his Friday Tiki Oasis Symposium: the Clark Gable 1935 film, Marlon Brando’s 1962 one, the more recent Mel Gibson 1984 adaptation as well as the lesser known Errol Flynn film “In the Wake of the Bounty.”

No question why Errol’s film qualified for the festival, just look at the “Otahiti” scenes from about 10:45 to 20:15!

Errol Flynn’s Ship Model

06 Aug

To all Flynn aficionados out there, I’m looking for the name of this ship, that was in Errol’s den.  I think it was a Dutch man of war, but I don’t know.  I have seen many ships on the internet and on many ship model makers that are very similar but it isn’t this exact ship.

I also think that this ship model could be one of the smaller models used in Captain Blood and the model dept at Warners could have given this to Flynn as a gift.  They must have copied it from photos of a real ship that had a name to it.

I have a close-up view of this ship but for some reason, I can’t post it in my post here.  I’m looking to have a replica made of this ship for my home office.  Any help in finding this ship or the name would be an awesome help to me.  I’m calling on Gentleman Tim who can find just about anything on Flynn…

Best wishes to you all

A Sunday Quiz

During his “college” days in London, Errol used to salivate on Sundays for this weekly treat.

Clues:

– He first took a very long walk in formal clothing.

– Before eating he used to mumble a little Latin.

– Evidence is very spotty but the name of this quiz dish may derive from the beloved breed depicted below.

Dr. Flynn

26 Jul

Eighty-two years ago this week …

Eight years ago when adventuresome Errol Flynn, now Warner’s new film rave, represented the British Government at New Guinea, one of his many odd duties was to act as physician and surgeon.

When a native named Joe Speedie appeared at headquarters with a gangrenous toe as a result of having been bitten by a poisonous fish,it was “Dr” Flynn who performed the necessary amputation of the infected toe. The emergency operation saved Joe’s life.

Last week, “Dr” Flynn received a belated fee for his surgical gesture, a valuable gold-headed cane. Joe explained in the accompanying letter that he had seen Errol in Captain Blood and was most happy to have located his benefactor of long ago. And Errol’s quite proud of his ‘fee.’

REFUSE TO BE AFRAID

SuperHood

22 Jul

“Take DC Comics’ ‘Green Arrow’ and drop him in medieval times and you have a fairly accurate description of what the newest Hollywood take on the bow-wielding legend looks like.”

““Robin Hood”, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx and Jamie Dornan, makes the hero-robber into a high-adrenaline action flick.”

“This fall’s “Hood” coincides with the 80th anniversary of “The Adventures of Robin Hood” starring Errol Flynn, who provided classic swashbuckling derring-do in the fight against oppression.”

“This “Hood”, though, is more of an alter-ego to set up Lord Robin of Locksley as an medieval superhero: the precursor to DC Comics’ Green Arrow, the masked secret identity of Star City billionaire Oliver Queen.”

What would Robin do?
