Bucket List

22 Nov

Dear Flynnstones,

according to the annals of Schlosshotel Gerhus, a luxurious residence shaped after an Italian Renaissance Palais and situated in Grunewald, it was the site of an In(famous) like Flynn night.

While Errol stayed in Berlin for the Biennale of 1957, he took part in a fine wine degustation there.

Unaccustomed to merely sipping and tasting different wine sorts, our Hollywood hero soon became bored with the procedure. He saw no point in disposing the rest of your glass into a champagne bucket that was passed around and waiting his turn for a refill.

Immediately he started to down the grape juices like Vodka shots.

Roli, as called amicably by the German public, may have thought he owed his audience and put up a stiff performance.

At a certain point he wrestled the bucket away from the waiter and drank the whole mix in one heartily gulp.

Needless to say, he had to lie down thereafter.

Which goes to show, that he who lives by the bottle, will die by the bucket.

Enjoy,

Tap Fence

Dear Flynnstones,

even while crossing swords the tandem of Errolivia was a congenial duo. Much like Ginger and Fred the ballet of Blood looks beautiful.

Enjoy,

White Hunter Black Sock

27 Aug

Dear Flynnstones,

here is Errol taking a breather during the shooting of THE ROOTS OF HEAVEN and an elephant. He used to wear his loafers in the nude in Hollywood, but on the black continent he took on the white man‘s burden of donning socks (probably from Warner Bros. stock). Acting totally in character while making a sock and sandal film.

You Can‘t Curry Love

26 Aug

Dear Flynnstones,

when Errol chose to make Rudyard Kipling’s KIM in India instead of KING SOLOMON‘S MINES in Africa, it was a heart over head decision.
In consequence of this costly career move, Flynn sipped his spicey tea in true British fashion- with a stiff upper lip. Empire losing England in turn gained a star in the bargain: www.theerrolflynnblog.com…
