Errol Full of Arrows

“Rocky Mountain (1950) – Errol Flynn is an ever gallant fellow, but he seems to carry gallantry too far in Warner Brothers’ “Rocky Mountain,” which came to the Strand yesterday. So far, in fact, does he carry it in guiding a beautiful dame from a horde of ravaging Indians that he ends up as full of arrows as a war-bonnet is full of feathers. And that’s about as far as one can go. The only valid explanation for (Mr. Flynn’s conclusive gallantry is that he here represents a Confederate captain and therefore a Southern gentleman. And it seems that a standing rule at Warners is that a Southern gentleman will lay down his life for a lady, even though it means disobeying Robert E. Lee.”

The Errol Flynn Rory knew…
