Hollywood and the Stars…

31 Oct

Back in 1963, there was the aforementioned series produced by David L Wolper. Those lucky enough, might catch a look at a particular program in the series titled “The Swashbucklers” (which featured Fairbanks Sr and…) sometimes MIGHT be found on a compilation tape of Flynn miscellaneous items (Pirate Party, etc.).

Always on the look out for a better copy in the hopes that the series would be commercially reissued.

With the passing of Wolper comes a change in that situation and its appearance on Youtube; narrated by Joseph Cotton and worth a look.

    Thanks, Karl. That’s some swashbucking- good entertainment! (Cotton pickin’ on Flynn a bit too much though – despite their mercado cameos in The Lady from Acapulco.) Even so, J.C. did admit:

    “None surpassed Errol Flynn, either on screen or off.”

    That about sums it up, Karl, except I believe it would have been more accurate to say “None came close to Errol Flynn, either on screen or off.”

    “On screen”…

    “Or off”…
