The Hearst heist

17 Jun

Dear fellow Flynn fans,

we were searching high and low, down and out all over the Lady from Shanghai for a fleeting Flynn: www.theerrolflynnblog.com…
Can it be we were denied another escapist Errol at William Randolph Hearst`s Circus Birthday Party?
The obscured fella in the back passing by the massive mogul`s table with Gable has an utmost resemblance with the fabulous Gentleman Jim.
Your educted guesses are very welcome.

The game is aflynn,

Doggone!

16 Jun

Harrison Carroll – Los Angeles Evening Herald Express – June 16, 1938

Errol Flynn’s dog, Arno, is barred off The Sisters set. Flynn has been training him as a protector and, when Bette Davis had to make a pass at Errol in a scene, the dog lunged at her, bit her leg and chased her up on a chair.

An EFB Four Score Anniversary News Report

Harrison Carroll – Los Angeles Evening Herald Express – June 15, 1937

Another weekend party, the Basil Rathbones’, was enlivened by all the stellar guests doing impromptu turns at entertaining. Marlene Dietrich really startled the cinema folk with a Russian dance. Errol Flynn, who knows not a word of the language obliged with a Russian song.

Party was a surprise celebration for Rathbone and all the guests hid their automobiles a block away.

King’s Bishop – Flynn’s Gambit

Here’s part of an original script for Captain Blood. How do you think Errol did in his interpretation of the script? (See 1:50 – 2:22 of the TCM video linked below.) I’d say bloody magnificent.

Are You With Him?

09 Jun

“Empire Presents 101 Classic Scenes, on sale now, assembles some of the most memorable moments in cinematic history, starting in 1938 with Errol Flynn’s speech from The Adventures Of Robin Hood …”

www.tcm.com…

“I’ve called you here as freeborn Englishmen, loyal to our king. While he reigned over us, we lived in peace. But since Prince John has seized the regency, Guy of Gisbourne and the rest of his traitors have murdered and pillaged.

You’ve all suffered from their cruelty: the ear loppings, the beatings, the blindings with hot irons, the burning of our farms and homes, the mistreatment of our women. It’s time to put an end to this!

Now, this forest is wide. It can shelter and clothe and feed a band of good, determined men, good swordsmen, good archers, good fighters.

Men, if you’re willing to fight for our people, I want you! Are you with me?

…Then kneel, and swear this oath:

You, the freemen of this forest, swear to despoil the rich only to give to the poor, to shelter the old and the helpless, to protect all women rich or poor, Norman or Saxon. Swear to fight for a free England. To protect her loyally until the return of our King and sovereign Richard the Lion Heart. And swear to fight to the death against our oppressors!”
