    I can’t believe you keep finding new material on Flynn. The internet is a wondrous thing.

      Thanks, zacal. Wondrous indeed! And Senor Fleen sure gave us a Flynnfinite amount of adventures to investigate & enjoy!!

      P.S. Meant to mention you in he radio broadcast as one of Errol’s great around-the-world fans & researchers, but (probably because Jack was in LA, and I was emphasizing the global nature of Flynn’s great fans) mistakenly missed out on praising your great work. Sorry about that, zacal! Would love for you to be a big part of tributes in LA and anywhere else you would like!!!

    Thank you Gent! It always takes me back to my very young childhood in the black & white era on the east coast where with all the rain, concrete and steel it was truly black & white.
    these newsreels and such are so unreal sometimes and I wonder if I was really there. Also the photos of Errol at around 45 look so much like me dad that it gives me chills. They were birds of a feather although Errol burned out faster. How he could live 100 years in fifty is a wonder!

      I love these old newsreels, too, timerider. The ones with the fascinating staccato narrations are so surreal, a la the classic voice of Walt Winchel in The Untouchables. The opening of Citizen Kane is my all time favorite.
      Combined with it’s magnificently artistic use of b&w, it’s professed reality is so magically surreal.

      Another facet of films I find so wonderfully surreal is walking out of a matinee, out of a dark theater into daylight.

      Pathe was one of the earliest and best newsreel producers. Here’s a still from a great one with Errol.
