Since Saturday, Warners is beseeching Errol Flynn to stay off horses except when the cameras are actually turning for The Charge of the Light Brigade. The Irish actor, not so long out of the hospital for an appendicitis operation, got the idea of practicing jumps for the picture. He went to a riding academy in the valley and was doing very nicely until the horse balked at a four-foot barrier and sent Flynn flying through the air. Landing, he missed a large rock by about an inch. The studio, which had 250 men ready to start to Lone Pine on location the next day, practically did a nipup when the news got around.
