“The first review of the year in the bibliomediateca offers four films with Errol Flynn, led by the genius director Michael Curtiz: on the bill some of the best action and adventure films made in Hollywood between the thirties and forties. The review “Errol Flynn, the face of adventure” will be inaugurated by the screening of “Captain Blood” by Michael Curtiz, the film that marks the beginning of the artistic association between the actor and the director.”

Mail Bag! Note from Errol & Fidel actor Jonathan Stewart!

20 Jul

We heard from actor Jonathan Stewart who starred as Errol Flynn in the musical play Errol & Fidel after two of our members Karl Holmber and Gentleman Tim attended the play in NYC.

 

Hi there,

I qwas given your card by an audience member after one of our performances last week.  I’m the actor who played Errol and I hope you enjoyed the show.  We all had a wonderful time living in the world of Errol and Fidel and the audiences seemed to love the show.  It was a very tall order as an actor to try and inhabit his now almost mythical existence, and I had the time of my life giving it a go. What a fascinating man he was, though I suppose you already know that!

Best,
Jonathan Stewart

 

I explained I was not at the show myself, but our two chums loved everything about the show, and hoped Rory Flynn would be able to see the show in another venue: Jonathan replied:

Hi David,

Glad to hear your friends got to see the show and enjoyed it.  We had a very short run as the show was part of the annual NY Musical Festival which features new works in development selected from hundreds of submissions each year.  The creators are all Australian (not surprisingly) and I know their hope is that the show will have a further life somewhere down the road.  However at the moment I’m not certain of the status of that. They are all lovely people and huge fans of Errol’s.  Please let Rory know what an honor it was for me to play her legendary father, and how much I enjoyed The Baron of Mulholland which I read as part of my preparation for the role.  Yes please feel free to use my email as a Mail Bag item on the blog.  I’ve attached a few production photos which you may have already seen published on line.

Best,

Jonathan

Thanks so much, Jonathan!

Mail Bag from Manhattan! Errol & Fidel Musical!

16 Jul

Just ending it successful run at the New York Musicic Festival was the musical offering Errol & Fidel from writer producers Boyd Anderson & Guy Anderson; Music by Peter Kaldor, John Kaldor and Doug Oberhamer; Lyrics by Boyd Anderson, directed by Michael Bello … Our own Karl Holmberg, Gentleman Tim, and Donna Juan attended the show and write to us from the theatre stage! I will let them comment on the show itself but here are some wonderful images, and a look at a novelty item soon available to everybody who follows our blog. More about that in another posting …

Some photos:

One adventure, two heroes. Something’s gotta give.

Cuba, 1958: Revolution is in the air! In his final year Errol Flynn has one last adventure. The dashing star of so many Hollywood blockbusters yearns to be a real hero, and Fidel Castro fits the bill. What Fidel craves is fame, and who better than Errol to show him how? At the height of the revolution an explosive encounter beckons – fueled by envy, lust, and vanity – with a mysterious woman calling the tune. Or could the CIA really be pulling the strings? Who knew revolution could be so much fun?

Recommended for ages 13+
Running time: 2 hours
GENRE: Comedy, Drama, History, Politics, Romance

Another Bite of the Big Apple

10 May

For Fans of Flynn who can make it to Manhattan over the next several months, there’s at least two events worth attending. There’s the Errol & Fidel musical (in July) that David recently made known to us. But, first, there’s The Adventures of Robin Hood at the Film Forum on May 10. Both look to be Flynnsational:

Screening information is as follows:

“THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD”(1938)
Saturday, May 20 – Film Forum, 209 W. Houston Street in New York City
Co-presented by Film Forum, featuring special guests Ben Burtt & Craig Barron

Join Oscar®-winning visual effects supervisor Craig Barron and Oscar-winning sound designer Ben Burtt as they deconstruct the extraordinary artistry behind “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” with a special emphasis on matte painting and sound effects, including a recreation of the archery tests that went into finding that just right “zing” sound.
