      Gifted indeed, Ralph. Tom’s bio of Errol is a masterpiece. …Here’s an extract from one of many reviews praising it:

      I’ve read a lot of biographies in my day, and I’ve read just about everything I could find on Errol Flynn. But Thomas McNulty’s biography of the screen legend, Errol Flynn: The Life and Career, is one of the finest I’ve ever read, and certainly it’s the best one on the life, legend, career, and legacy of Errol Flynn. McNulty’s research is amazing, and the information he provides, the tales of Flynn’s youth in Tasmania, his adventures, and film career are not only the story of a very talented, intelligent and complex human being, it’s also something of an inside look at Hollywood, and Warner Bros motion picture studio.

      McNulty’s book is filled with insight and great compassion for his subject. But he’s not an author to shy away from those dark, disturbing corners of his subject’s troubled life. This book reads like a novel, a high adventure that picks you up and sweeps you along, taking you on a journey through cinema history, a journey filled with great and mediocre films, battles with directors and studio boss Jack Warner, and battles with the press, the courts, and the FBI. Flynn’s story is one of tall tales, booze, babes, drugs, brawls, and a zest for life that was almost Olympian in scope. (I think it’s safe to say that Errol Flynn was also the very first “rock star,” and that he set the tone for what he never lived to see: the Swinging 1960s.)

      Allow me now to end my review in Thomas McNulty’s own words, from the final chapter of his book, so you may read for yourselves what he has to say about the life and career of Errol Flynn:

      “His picaresque life as a sailor on the seas of fate; his ability to find adventure amidst the mediocrity of daily life; his courage in facing his adversaries, both on and off the screen, all make for an intriguing portrait of a man who lived life to the fullest.”

      There is real emotional depth in McNulty’s biography.

      The above review was written by Joe Bonadonna.

      Tom is a great writer who has done magnificent things for the legacy of Flynn. Errol was blessed to have him as a biographer, and We’re extremely fortunate to have him on the EFB.
