I watched a documentry about the movie producer Robert Evans, before he was a big shot movie mogul he was a struggling actor who had appeared with Jmes Cagney in “Man of a thousand faces playng Irving Thalberg. Out in a nightclub he gets spotted by Darryl Zanuck who wants him to play the part of a bullfighter in “The sun also rises”opposite Ava Gardner, so he flew to Mexico to prepare for the role , but when Ernest Hemingway seen him he didn't want him in the role so he sent a telegram to Zanuck along with Ava Gardner Tyrone Power and Eddie Albert sayiing the movie would be a disaster if Evans was kept in the picture Errol Flynn refused to sign it and just laughed according to Evans himself. Nice guy our man flynn. Evans was kept in the movie
