    Great Photo! I remember Jack with darker hair! LOL! I just keep loosing hair,LOL! Good one of David and now I know what Kyra looks like and a good photo also.
    The Cuban story is a mixed one, glad it was cleaned up but sad that the government is not exactly one that I condone.
    It will be good to see the final cut of the restored flick!

      It’s important to realize the the US supported Castro at the time Errol was there, so his comments were not in support of a communist government which didn’t come about until after Flynn had passed away – Castro was viewed as a modern day Robin Hood who was overthrowing an evil dictator as this film was being made and nobody knew what sort of government he would run later. At first, he promised a free press and free speech, and tried to right many of the wrongs of Batista. In time, things changed drastically, and it is through our knowledge of how things changed that we often view Flynn’s support of Castro in the beginning; Flynn later felt, viewing some of the things beginning to happen that there was something wrong but he didn’t live to see the country go under the control of the USSR under Castro’s dictatorship. With his passing we may yet see another turnaround …

    Is it possible to “revive” the indiegogo campaign so that more donor can give money?

    I agree David and it was an adrenalin rush at the time for many to see the evil of Batista challenged and put down. Mr Castro was an idealist then and may still have that attitude but power can corrupt. The communist ideal is one that cannot work with men in control. Governments and even religious organizations have played that out. Yes Errol may not have seen the end of the revolution and it’s communist unfolding as Fidel’s plans cemented 1959 Errol left us and he watched from another dimension.
