“Flynn in Focus on TCM” January 17, 2017

04 Jan

Quoting the Bucks County Courier Post:

"Flynn in Focus on TCM"

"Fans of swashbuckling favorite Errol Flynn have the opportunity on Jan. 17 to binge watch seven of his favorite films.

The film-lover’s network Turner Classic Movies will begin airing the titles beginning at 6 a.m. that day.

According to TCM’s detailed Now Playing: A Viewer’s Gide to Turner Classic Movies, the titles will be:"

"Adventures of Don Juan”, with Viveca Lindfors in the breezy version of the legendary lover charged with saving his queen from treason. Vincent Sherman directed. (1948; 6 a.m.)


“Captain Blood”, with Olivia De Havilland in Flynn’s star-making role as a doctor-turned-pirate. Michael Curtiz directed. (1935; 8 a.m.)


“Kim“, with Dean Stockwell in an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s tale of an orphaned boy and his adventures with the British Army. Victor Saville directed. (1950; 10 a.m.)


“Northern Pursuit”
, with Julie Bishop in a thriller about a Mountie tracking a Nazi flyer through the Canadian wilderness. Raoul Walsh directed. (1943; noon)


“The Prince and the Pauper
”, with Claude Rains in an adaptation of a Mark Twain tale about a prince who changes places with a peasant boy. William Keighley directed. (1937; 1:45 p.m.)


“The Adventures of Robin Hood”, with Basil Rathbone in the ultimate version of the story about a hero who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor. Curtiz directed. (1938; 3:45 p.m.)


“The Sea Hawk”
, with Claude Raines in the adventure epic about a British buccaneer who challenges the Spanish fleet. Curtis directed. (1940; 5:30 p.m.)



“For Flynn fans, binge watching these titles ranks as a great way to kick off 2017.”

The Great Race

06 Nov

Arrogate v. California Chrome. Names that would have worked well in Errol’s own stable.

It was a great day at the races today at Hollywood’s hometown horsetrack, Santa Anita, one of Errol’s favorite haunts, where he often played the ponies, and occasionally raced some of his own.……

“America’s biggest race may be the Kentucky Derby, but Santa Anita – or ‘Hollywood’s Racetrack’ – in California wins in the glamour stakes.”

“Since Santa Anita Park opened back in 1934, the horse race track has been featured in numerous films, including A Star is Born (1954), Bob Hope’s The Lemon Drop Kid, the Marx Brothers film A Day At The Races and National Lampoon’s Vacation to name just a few.”
