2:00 PM – Great Performers: Errol Flynn the Swashbuckler with Marc Courtade

Errol Flynn was considered the natural successor to Douglas Fairbanks, achieving worldwide fame during the golden age of Hollywood. Tall, athletic, and exceptionally handsome, Flynn was best known for his romantic swashbuckler roles, most often in partnership with Oliva de Havilland. Flynn’s films remain popular and audiences are still captivated by his good looks and charisma on screen. He remains a true movie star. So sorry for the lateness of this piece only just found it myself. So exciting after all these years they still celebrate Errol at the hall he on
ce hid a bottle of whisky…. Genene.

Showdown by Errol Flynn!

17 Jun

The West Australian Newspaper

Saturday, October 12, 1946

At work on SHOWDOWN with his editorial assistant …

The dedication he wrote to his parents reveals he was not happy with the final result … perhaps warding off criticism of his work?

The book went on to be republished in paperback many times. It is now a collector’s item and if you have a copy, hang onto it!

Flynn, by a Knockout! Perfect Specimen!

10 Jun

Flynn’s opponent later became a personal assistant in Hollywood to Daryl Zanuck …

DAILY ADVERTISER NSW

Friday 16 December 1938Page 6

Tasmanlan-born film star, knocked out Captain Aidan Roark, the international polo player. A brawl occurred at a cocktail party at the home of socially prominent Mrs Jock Whitney. Spectators say that
after the knockout a friend of Roark’s rushed forward and punched Flynn in the jaw, loosening a tooth. Flynn is 6ft 2in in height, and weighs 12st 12lb. He was discovered by Mr. Charles
Chauvel, and his first screen appearance was as Fletcher Christian in the Australian production, ‘In the Wake of the Bounty.’ The last two films in which Australia has seen him were the Hollywood productions of ‘The Perfect Specimen’ and ‘Robin Hood.’ Captain Roark’s height and weight are
not on record locally. A Captain Roark played No. 3 at polo for England against the United States in 1927 and again in 1930.
