“In addition to the many screenings, [the Coronado Film Festival] hosted appearances that have delighted film festival audiences including Errol Flynn’s daughter sharing memories of her father.”

“Coronado’s world-class beaches, perfect weather, and proximity to Hollywood have made it a favorite go-to spot for the stars since those halcyon days when Errol Flynn, Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin strolled the Avenue. That same avenue, with its unique shops, blooming gardens and alfresco dining, has been named one of America’s five “Most Romantic Main Streets” by the National Trust for Historic Places.”

Rory & Sean in Coronado!

    Tim, thanks for posting these links. When I first saw TCM’s Adventures of Errol Flynn, I’d wondered why on earth Richard Dreyfus was interviewed. And now I know, and it makes sense. What a great story.

      Thank you, Barb. Richard has been a great, lifelong admirer of Errol, and good friends with Rory since they each starred on the 2015 TCM Caribbean Cruise.

      “Notable guests included: Tab Hunter, Ann Blyth and Rory Flynn, daughter of Errol Flynn. Also in attendance was Richard Dreyfuss, who celebrated his 67th birthday during the TCM cruise.”
