Errol Flynn & Olivia de Havilland offset 'Captain Blood'

26 Jul

The series of photos of the screenteam fencing offset 'Captain Blood' in 1935 are without a doubt my favourite photo's of the two together – Last week I bought 2 photo's I hadn't seen before from this candid photoshoot off eBay and the first of the 2 arrived today – So I share it with you, sadly the scan turned out quite unclear, but I tried to edit the brightness to clear up the image as much as possible!

My plan is to get every photo from the series of Flynn and deHavi in this candid photoshoot and frame them as a set so I can look at 'em everyday!

Community Quiz Question

17 Jul

Ok, here's what I call a “Community Quiz Question” because I don't have the answer all ready. I intended to get it, but realised that it won't be until maybe in two years or so, that's why I thought it'd be easier to post it as a question for all.

–> How often did Errol get a slap in the face in his movies?

Please enter the answers as follows:

Name of the slapping person, title of movie, reason

Example and part of the solution which you all know:

1. Bette Davis, The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, for turning his back on the Queen/insolence

I invite everybody to join in, it may take weeks or months to be complete, but would be great if we managed another trivial topic in a joint effort. Don't forget to number the slaps! So here would be number two:

2. Faye Emerson, Uncertain Glory, for not telling the truth about himself

Hope you enjoy a little! I'll be off for a holiday on Tuesday, let's see what you manage in the meantime.

Would you like to feel ten feet tall? Mark Young does!

17 Jul

And why? Because he is related to Errol Flynn! Mark says, “As you can imagine, being cousin to Errol Flynn makes you feel about ten feet tall. My other claim to fame is that my uncle was Clark Gable's batman during the last war when he was stationed at RAF Polebrook in Northants, England. …Errol Flynn… …Clarke Gable… and I never did either's autograph!”

Rory Flynn, told of Mark Young, said, “Yes, Lot's of Young relatives in Hobart, too!”

In one of Errol's movies!

12 Jul

Hi everybody – again I have been MIA for a while and noticed nobody has place a quiz question!?

Here is one for fun:
In one of Errol's movies there was a horse who had a nice name:
1. What was the name of the horse?
2. What was the race of the horse?
3. What was the horse able to do?
4. Who rode the horse – did Errol or another actor ride the horse?
5. What year did this horse have its movie debut?
6. Later this horse received another name – what was this name?
7. Who renamed the horse and why?

Happy quizzing – Saturday is answering time!
First entry with all the correct answers is the winner!

EF Movie Review

Here's a fresh, but… awful… movie review of Elizabeth and Essex… apparently, the author does not like Errol at all but unfortunately, there is no opportunity to vent one's anger at this piece of writing……

Ahoy, the Sirocco!

07 Jul

Louis Vick contacted the blog recently to let us know he has 16 cushions that belonged to the Sirocco, Errol's famous yacht… he asks what value to place on them if he sells them? This would be highly subjective according to how badly a collector wanted to own them so I have no fixed amount that I can tell him would be appropriate. He gave me his email address and phone number in case anybody here wants to contact him. I will share that information with anybody who asks and has questions for him about the cushions. He sent some pics attached below. Some of them are thumbnails but you may be able to expand your screen to view them…
