In should`ve been Flynn 3

30 Oct

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

the monumental “El Cid” was part of a package of proposed historheroes, when Errol extended his contract at Warners.

If you have 3 hours of spare time you can watch it here now:…

Ben heir of the role was Charlton Heston, who wears his armor well, but is not nearly as handsome as Flynn, and at that without grin.

Sophia Loren, the Monica Bellucci of her time, stars as loving leading lady and would have gotten her revenge on our Hollywood hero, who had turned her down 10 years earlier for a long running contract at his Flynn Enterprises brokered by Jack Cardiff, seeing absolutly no star or sex appeal in the unknown young actress!

The instant success of this widescreen extravaganza leaves the bittersweat taste of a juiced orange in the mouth of every Flynnthusiast, since it came shortly after Errol’s untimely death.

Moreover everybody who has ever been in on Flynn knows that he practically invented the device that keeps El Cid in the saddle for his last rites ride.

    The story of spaniard superhero El Cid was proposed to Errol Flynn by surrealist artist Salvatore Dalì.
