Flynn, Kennedy & Miss Congo???

15 Dec

Was there a connection???

As Flynn in Florida research continues I quite unexpectedly came across this reported connection between Errol and one of Joe Kennedy’s early films. … leading one to wonder what happened to the rest of Errol’s reportedly “huge collection of silent films”? Any or all also at MoMA?……

    If there were any other of Errol`s reels at the MoMA, that would be an ape-ic find, Gentleking Kong. However the new Flynn according to Steven Spielberg (…) will star in a very similar monkey maker next year:…

      Holy Mackerel, simianheinz! What a show!

      Forget about “the new Errol Flynn”, though, everyone knows that %^$#$%@!~!%&*$ Kong doesn’t stand a chance against Samuel L. Jackson. Too bad Bruce Cabot ain’t still around, he could just stab Kong in the back.

          You may want to ask the FBI, Selene. And perhaps the George Eastman (House) Museum.

          “In 1974, the FBI raided the home of [the primate inmate depicted below, who went ape unlawfully videocopying copyrighted films] and seized his collection of films and television series in the course of an investigation into film piracy and copyright infringement. His collection consisted of 160 16-mm prints and more than 1,000 video cassettes, at a time before the era of commercial videotapes, when there was no legal aftermarket for films. McDowall had purchased Errol Flynn’s home cinema films and transferred them all to tape for longer-lasting archival storage. No charges were filed.”
