Dear Flynnstones, a tribute to the golden era of Hollywood will hit the the big screen this Christmas. The title Baby-lon seems fit. At first glance, Brad Pitt must have channeled Errol Flynn with a little Indy Jones or rather Peter O‘ Toole in „My favorite Year“ for his role. Calling it overacting would be an understatement. Homage or fromage… (more…)

Flynn`s Footsteps- Sloping and Sliding in Switzerland

Dear Flynnstones, Sankt Moritz is another great storytelling venue Errol Flynn set foot on. His best man Freddie McEvoy was a regular guest at the famous Badrutt`s Palace Hotel with is first wife, the oil heiress Beatrice Cartwright.

A Wider Shade of Hale

Dear Flynnstones, as this picture shows, Rufus Edward Mackahan could have held his own as Robin Hood.
