From Ventura Sala, a wonderful Flynn docu!

20 Jan

Ventura Sala appears in a wonderful docu about Errol Flynn in Majorca, Spain, with some very rare footage and stills I'd never seen before. The docu is 25.44 in length and you can view it by following this link: Ventura Sala Docu

There are shots of Flynn aboard the Zaca, clips of Zaca under sail, Errol at the local Bullfights, and scenes of Majorca. Also, seen is a film being made by other Hollywood stars, and clips of noted visitors such Charles Chaplin, Ava Gardner, and Rita Hayworth. But most of the recollections and stills are about Errol Flynn. The docu is all in Spanish but for those of us who don't speak Spanish it is still a worthy and fascinating docu to watch…

    Great still shots! Thanks for posting them for us to see, David! However, when I clicked on the link to watch the video, the page I came to said it's no longer available to view. Too bad, as I was looking forward to watching footage of Errol in Spain.

    It appears the video link is no longer active. I tried searching the site; but to no avail.

    Thanks to Ventura – would be great to have an English version though!

    Hi all,
    I am a good friend of Ventura Sala, his father was a crew member on the Zaca in the Mallorca days of Errol and Pat. Somewhere I have a copy of 2 documentaries he did in Spanish for the Spanish National Television Network, great work. I haven't met him yet in person although we occasionally have contact by e-mail or mobile. I think he is a great and essential asset to the blog website.
    If there is anything I can do, just drop a line.

    Ventura sent me a good link. The one I used worked when I posted it but got broken somehow? Anyway, it works now. Ventura, you did a wonderful job on this docu! Thanks so much!

    Thanks for posting this link, Inga — it worked! What a great docu about Errol and Majorca, Spain! I enjoyed watching it. And yes, since I don't speak Spanish, it would be even better if the video had English subtitles. :-)

    Hi Ventura;
    These are wonderful shots – thank you for sharing these pictures.
    I gather they all must have been taken in and around Mallorca?
    All the best to you!

    Tina- I totally agree with you. I'm so glad you're back! We all missed your infectious enthusiasm and good cheer and your pro-Errol partisanship. You were very missed- it makes me feel better seeing your posts. Kevin
