Actin’ Like Flynn – Part 7 – The Crocketeer

15 Feb

rocketeerHave at it. The immortal Walt Disney must have spun in his grave (or cryogenic freezer) when he learned about his beloved studio’s viciously fictional attack on his friend Errol. Miscreant Chuckie Pigham spawned this despicably malicious misdepiction of Flynn. I hope the sick, jealous bastard is burning in hell.


What a shame. If they had made Errol the hero, it could have been an historically great film.

    I really enjoyed the story of Rocket Man and my mother had many of the early Sci Fi mags from the 30’s and 40’s.
    I didn’t even put 1 and 1 together when I saw this film. Later when I realized the Hammy point of view it made me sick!

    As bad as the slander is for this film, I think the portrayal of Errol Flynn in ‘The Aviator” was not only despicable and a stabbing in the back of his character since he was no longer around to defend himself. Ralph Schiller

      RS tells it like it is. Especially considering that Howard Hughes came across very favourably…
