Dear Flynnmates,

since Hitler did not only wage war on the world, but on Warner Bros. too, Errol`s movies were banned in most of Europe until 1945. Once released they instantly became huge successes. In 1951 Flynn was awarded the “Bambi”, a feline golden statuette, for favorite screen actor in Germany of that year. This may even have prompted him to come over to take over the Old Continent. Here are some marvelous hand painted European movie posters, which in their own right contributed to his outstanding cinematic reputation.

    I guess it is interesting to note that the film released in Germany as “On Word of Honor” is one of my favorites known in the US as “Uncertain Glory.”–A. R.
