Mail Bag from our Topper MacKay!

More Portraits …

1935 was a busy year for Flynn in front of the cameras. Not only was this his fourth portrait session of the year (shown here) but it was shot in the fall, during the filming of Captain Blood … along with some other activities!

Portraits, Portraits, Portraits! Errol Flynn at Warner Bros!

06 Jun

The most portraits officially taken of Errol Flynn were during his time with Warmer Bros., of course, also known as glamour shots. These are pictures specifically shot  just of Flynn. No other persons, no movie stills, no candids or special events. These were marked with E.F. and a number (e.g. E.F.308).

His career in the U.S. photo studios began with E.F.1 at WB in late November/early December of 1934, shot by Scotty Welbourne, and ended with E.F.608 at WB on December 17, 1957.

Here is a sample of a WB shoot from Dec.20-23, 1938 by photographer, Bert Longworth.

Errol Flynn’s Cruise of the Zaca & Deep Sea Fishing!

30 May

When Flynn took his expedition cruise down the Mexico coast in August of 1946, there were two short subjects made through Warner Bros. that were released years later after all the legalities about the films were resolved.

The Cruise of the Zaca premiered on November 26, 1952 at the Embassytheatres in New York City and continued around the country for months.

The other film, Deep Sea Fishing, was also scheduled for theatrical release about the same time.

But that never happened. The film was released earlier, only on television, on June 8, 1952. I have also included the newspaper clipping of the premiere.

Have fun …

A Few Firsts for Flynn!

22 May

Topper MacKay provides a first installment of some looks inside his two volume book on dear ‘ol Errol: “Errol Flynn, Movie Star” …


The following  excerpts speak for themselves as they appeared in the book . The first U.S. magazine cover. January 31, 1936. The first overseas cover.  April 12, 1936. There may have been a dispute about the first one overseas, since the French magazine Cinemonde included a free paper supplement in their regular issue of Feb, 20, 1936. It did not appear on the magazine’sactual cover for that issue. Here is the flyer that was added though I am submitting it for reference only and did not include this insert in the book.

And the first U.S. magazine article with an Errol Flynn byline. August 9, 1936.
