It was Fifty Years Ago Today, The Beatles Hit the USA*

Captain Blood with Sword Flynn

Before Beatlemania, There was Errolmania
Before Sargeant Pepper, There was Captain Blood.
Before Lennon, There was Flynn
Before The Fab Four Sported Long Hair, The Fabulous Flynn Sported Long Hair
Before “She was Just Seventeen”, There was “She was Just Seventeen” (If You Know What I Mean)

Long Before The Beatles, Flynn Took His Own Magical Mystery Tour.
And – Just as The Beatles Will Never Be Topped at What They Did – So It is with Errol Flynn. He was a One Man (No Lonely Hearts Club) Band!

It’s Even Said The Mop Tops Stayed at One of Errol’s Old Hideaways in LA – “The Mansion” in Laurel Canyon…

* Landing February 7, 1964: Idlewylde Airport, New York City, soon to be “JFK”

    Last night was the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, with a fabulous. star-studded celebration telecast from the very stage where the British Invasion began. … Twelve years earlier, Flynn appeared on the Sullivan Show, with Dorthy Dandridge, Paulette Goddard & Sam Snead. It, too, was “a reallly, really big show”, as Big Ed used to say.
