Errol Flynn Mailbag! Dean Stockwell recalls Errol Flynn!

21 Aug

Got a nice link to the following quote about Errol Flynn from actor Dean Stocvkwell’s imdb page:

(In a 1984 interview) There were uglies and there were beauties. For me, Errol Flynn was the best. I didn’t know anything about sex or what manhood was – and he opened that door for me.
[In a 1984 interview] Dick Widmark… I remember him with such fondness. He and Errol had something in common. They didn’t have a condescending attitude. Being human and honest in a relationship seemed to mean more to them than anything else. It meant a great deal to me. I don’t know if Widmark is aware of that. They were straight with me – like, I would imagine, a father would be to a son… if he loved and respected him. And I didn’t have a father with me.

Dean Stockwell

31 Dec

Have any of the authors here interviewed Dean Stockwell?  I came across an article on the Internet that quotes Mr. Stockwell during the time Kim was being filmed and the quotes are quite crude.  I've come across other crude quotes by others who knew Errol and wonder why he would say such things to preteens, his own son included!  Maybe that is why he gets such a bad rap.  Whenever I bring up his name my friends just shake their heads.  I still don't care . . . I am a fan.
