Meet the Mayor

04 Jun

Mayor David Wenham – from 300, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

“Last month the hard working Wenham played Christian Travers, the fictional mayor of Townsville in director Russell Mulcahy’s Errol Flynn biopic In Like Flynn, shot on the Gold Coast.

Produced by James M. Vernon and Corey Large, the film follows the early life of the Tasmanian-born Flynn (Red Dog: True Blue’s Thomas Cocquerel) as he and his friends set sail from Sydney to New Guinea in search of gold. The mayor is the local bookmaker and brothel owner. Other cast members include Callan Mulvey, Isabel Lucas, Corey Large, William Moseley and Clive Standen.

Wenham relished the chance to work with Mulcahy, describing him as a great character and an absolute hoot.”

Nightcrawler

27 May

“Nightcrawler is known for his love of dashing, swashbuckling Hollywood star Errol Flynn and Flynn’s role in Captain Blood in particular. He even made himself look like Flynn back in the days when he used an image inducer to hide his blue, furry form.”

“In Amazing X-Men, the demon Azazel, sailed a pirate ship to conquer heaven, and it was up to Nightcrawler and his swashbuckling friends to defend the afterlife.”

The Flynn-Inspired Masterpiece was released Forty Years Ago Today

“[George] Lucas described Star Wars [to 20th Century Fox executive Alan Ladd Jr.] as an amalgam of Buck Rogers, Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk, two Errol Flynn swashbucklers. Ladd [who had been greatly impressed by American Graffiti] had grown up with the people who starred in and made these movies and was willing to take a chance on Lucas.” Skywalking: The Life and Films of George Lucas, page 136.
