In a Galaxy Far, Far Away

29 Dec

Tammy, Tammy, Tammy is gone.

How terribly, terribly sad. One of the last true greats from Hollywood’s Golden Age has died, only a day after her daughter, also a film legend.

Around the time of her playing Tammy, there was discussion of Debbie Reynolds costarring with Errol, following his own great success in The Sun Also Rises. This was all circa the time Liz ran off with the Louse, leaving the unsinkable Debbie with two Fisher toddlers, Todd and Carrie. Carrie, of course, achieved immortality of her own starring in Star Wars with spacebuckler Hans Solo, a character inspired by Errol himself. Except for Harrison, they are all now in a galaxy far, far away. Godspeed to all of them.

Actin’ Like Flynn – Part 5 – The Last But Not Least

12 Feb

Highlighted by an outstanding portrayal of a late-1950s Flynn by Kevin Kline, who, many believe, should have played Flynn in a major biopic way back when he could have portrayed Errol at his physical and cinematic swashbuckling peak. Unfortunately, apparently due to screenplay and budget problems, the film itself is not nearly on par with Kline’s superlative performance. Susan Sarandon does an excellent job, as well.

In should`ve been Flynn 6

18 Dec

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

early on Errol and Gary Cooper were the go- to- guys for any given heartthrob history film in the traumfabrik. Proposed roles went back and forth. Marco Polo was one those announced future Fynn flicks.
I can easily picture our Hollywood hero galopping down Silk Street, ahm Road all the way to Kublai Khan’s court bringing back to the Western hemisphere spaghetti and paper money.
See for yourselves this magical travelogue movie here: www.youtube.com…

In 1953 both cavs bought the same Mercedes model in Germany within a few months’ time and then would have the same famous diva as co- pilot. Dolce Vita Anita would purchase a Benz Coupe’ later herself and have Freddie McEvoy playboy friend Gianni Agnelli riding shotgun.
While Coop regrouped with High Noon in the Fifties, Flynn declined first before finishing strong with “The sun also rises” and “Roots of heaven”. An invisible bond linked them in death as in life, since these two fine leading men died within a short period of time.

Enjoy,
