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 …

I was happy to use a similar photo of the crowd at the Albuquerque station on March 31, 1939 in my book. When was the last time you saw an old-fashioned perimeter directory used to ID the
folks? Click on images!

Have fun,

Would anyone know how to watch this movie in good quality? I bought a dvd a while ago but was disappointed as it was very blurry and had the tcm logo. Who knows, maybe WB Archive will release it?
