    I wish we had more of these shows! And other episodes of his radio show as the modern descendent of Casanova …

    Thanks Tim for this as well. I agree with David and that is good news from Louis. Perhaps a DVD company will release the entire set of 26 episodes of The Errol Flynn Theatre!

    Wowow! Another Flynn vs. Lee duel. Notice how Count Dracu seeks to protect his Index finger holding his hand behind his back…

      Excellent point, toucheheinz

      Being handy with a sword can be a double-edged thing.

      From his autobio:

      “While filming a sword fight with Errol Flynn for The Dark Avenger, Flynn almost cut off Lee’s little finger, forever scarring and misshaping it. Years later, a rematch was filmed for Flynn’s TV show. Flynn was supposed to duck while Lee took a swing at him. The swing would go over his head, while lopping the tops off the candles on a candelabra standing behind Flynn. Lee managed the extremely difficult manoeuvre, successfully chopping the candles down. Unfortunately, he also took Flynn’s wig off his head. Flynn walked silently off set. It took over half-an-hour to persuade him it had not been deliberate.”
