Flynn at the Box Office

01 Apr

The most popular sites really have no information on older films and I wonder how well his films did other than someones opinion.

I remember on one of the Yahoo groups there was a guy who had a source for these films and he was correct on one of them that I remember which was San Antonio.

    First of all, GREAT PICTURE, thank you. As for San Antonio being his biggest grosser, I remember reading this as well. The key to its success was it came after the end of the war. Escapism at its best.(and Technicolor to boot) The surprise to me was the success of “Adventures of Don Juan”. I’d read that it was a modest success and lead to the downgrading of Flynn’s budgets, as well as the end of his Warner swashbucklers. But these figures make it look like a HUGE success. WTH?? Why didn’t Warners keep making Flynn swashbucklers???

      Thanks for the link. I knew of this site but never checked it. You know what they say when you assume something?
