just a bit I found on line

18 Mar

Robin Hood star Errol Flynn was an exceptional sword dancer. He was as good with a sword as he appeared to be in movies. Flynn performed his own stunts and was called the duelling Fred Astaire. Genene

Guess who Samuel L Jackson admires, but~ guess who he WANTED to…

08 Mar

In an interview on the Sunday Morning Series (with Jane Pauli), March 6, 2022 / 9:47 AM / CBS News

Samuel L. Jackson is a movie star, and he loves his job. “Movie sets are my playground. That’s my happy place,” he said.

“Sunday Morning” contributor Kelefa Sanneh asked, “Is acting easy for you?”
“Yeah,” he laughed. “Feels like it is. It’s fun for me.”

He has made more than 150 films, and is one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars. He’s worked closely with Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino, and he’s a familiar presence in the “Star Wars” and Marvel franchises…

“I think movies should be entertaining,” Jackson said. “You know, popcorn movies, I love popcorn movies! Turn your brain off. You don’t have to figure out the plot, you don’t have to worry about who did it, you know? He did it! Now let’s have some fun!”

He admired actors Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte. But he didn’t want to be them.

“I wanted to be Errol Flynn if I was gonna be somebody,” he laughed. “I wanted to be up there sword-fighting and swashbuckling across the screen!”

Mr Fegerl’s journey to Jamaica

06 Mar

Some time back, when I posted the info about Mr Fegerl’s new book, there was a question as to why the pages below were included. Mr Fegerl gave me the permission to publish these pages on the blog. They relate to a private journey he made in Flynn’s footsteps. Hope you’ll enjoy.

Add to calendar
915 E 60th St, Chicago, IL, 60637
Korngold Festival, presented in partnership with University of Chicago and Folks Operetta, is proud to announce Korngold Rediscovered, highlighting the life and music of one of the 20th century’s most successful yet underrecognized composers, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, with live performances April 1-10.

On Friday, April 8 at 7:00 p.m. the 1938 film, “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” will be presented in a rare archival print by the Film Studies Center, providing a remarkable complement for the performances of Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s 1937 opera, Die Kathrin, the American premiere of which is the centerpiece of the Korngold Festival. This film was the first to realize the full dimensions of the epic movie that Hollywood films would in many ways define. The all-star cast including Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone and Claude Rains appear larger than life, and is shot in technicolor, moving through the sonic landscape of Korngold’s richly orchestrated composition. In fact, he received the 1938 Academy Award for the best dramatic score in a film. For Korngold, “The Adventures of Robin Hood” and Die Kathrin together symbolized the passage from the impending crisis in Vienna to that of the New World. Print courtesy of the George Eastman Museum and lent by an anonymous collector.

This event will take place Friday, April 8 at 7:00 p.m. at the University of Chicago’s David and Reva Logan Center for the Arts, 915 E. 60th St. To reserve tickets for individual events please visit “Concerts and Events” at www.korngoldfestival.o……;

Robbin Hood on the Big Screen

25 Feb

Sunday, February 27 at 4:00 p.m. at the R/C Kill Devil Hills Movies 10
The Adventures of Robin Hood Returns to the Silver Screen
By Submitted Story on February 22, 2022

Bryan Cultural Series
Action, romance, political intrigue, the righting of wrongs with no moral ambiguity—Warner Brothers magnificent 1938 film “The Adventures of Robin Hood” has it all. And now it’s returning to the silver screen thanks to the Bryan Cultural Series.

Featuring the Oscar Award winning score by Erich Korngold, every Robin Hood film that has followed pales by comparison. Directed by Michael Curtiz, who would win an Oscar for “Casablanca” three years later, “The Adventures of Robin Hood” stands the test of time remarkably well. Perhaps it is how clear-cut what is right and wrong in the world of Robin Hood that has kept audiences intrigued by the movie for over 80 years. Here is Robin and Lady Marian talking about justice.

Lady Marian: You’re a strange man.

Robin Hood: Strange? Because I can feel for beaten, helpless people?

Lady Marian: No. You’re strange because you want to do something about it. You’re willing to defy Sir Guy, even Prince John himself, to risk your own life. And one of those men was a Norman!

Robin Hood: Norman or Saxon, what’s that matter? It’s injustice I hate, not the Normans.

Or perhaps the sword play and unerring accuracy of Errol Flynn’s archery, or the the chance to cheer for the good over evil—whatever it may be, the movie is truly a classic.

Errol Flynn was at the height of his powers in 1938 and Olivia de Havilland is radiant and perfect as the Lady Marian. Throw in the insidious evil of Basil Rathbone as the Sheriff of Nottingham and the rousing score by Eric Korngold that tells its own story, and a true movie classic comes to life.

With an introduction and discussion of the film and its score by Dr. Chris Palestrant, Professor of Music Composition at ECSU, “The Adventures of Robin Hood” is a must see film for the whole family.

The Bryan Cultural Series will screen the film on Sunday, February 27 at 4:00 p.m. at the R/C Kill Devil Hills Movies 10, 1800 N. Croatan Highway, Kill Devil Hills.
