Greetings from your new Author!

27 May

Hello Flynnatics,

I would like to introduce myself to you all. I was born and raised in the Netherlands, and still live there. 4 years ago I discovered Errol through a video on YouTube.  It was an English TV program of 30 minutes in which my favorite British actor Nathaniel Parker played a one man piece and was (ofcourse) Errol. After seeing that I was curious about the real Errol and started with YouTube. The first video I found was of Errol’s movie bloopers. I then bought a DVD boxset with 4 of Errol’s movies. The Adventures of Robin Hood was the first movie I saw . He leaped from the TV screen into my heart. He is still there and has to share it with Clark Gable, my other movie favorite.

I started to collect movies and books and at the moment I have a nice collection of both. As David Niven said “he was a fascinating creature.” I can’t name a favorite movie, as it changes all the time. At the moment I go for Gentleman Jim, but They Died With Their Boots On, Adventures of Don Juan, The Roots of Heaven and The Sun Also Rises are in that category. I even have his autograph and a drawing of him with Arno tattooed on my arms. A bit crazy for some, but not for me. People always ask me who the man of the tattoo is and when I tell them, very few know the name Errol Flynn.

Next to my affection for Errol I love to travel. I also love to read and am interested in certain periods in history. In a few months time it is time for another trip to Paris (a favorite city) and I hope to visit some Flynn locations while I am there. I am honoured and happy to join the Errol Flynn Blog as Administrator. I hope I can contribute some nice things about Errol or those around him. To start it of I would like to post a video I found on Facebook, and can also be found on YouTube. It is a fan tribute by a lady called Darla. She created one of the best (in my opinion) fanvideo made of Errol. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
