Eightieth Anniversary Celebration of Captain Blood – April 11, 2015

12 Apr

St. Augustine, Florida

Quoting primarily from VisitStAugustine.com…:

The St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum hosts a cinematic tribute to Hollywood’s iconic swashbuckler, Errol Flynn, on Saturday, April 11, 2015, The event marks the 80th anniversary of Flynn’s pirate classic, “Captain Blood”, which will be shown on a large outdoors screen in the Colonial Quarter.

“The Sea Hawk”, another classic Errol Flynn swashbuckler, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year and will also be shown. The Sea Hawk is loosely based on the history of Sir Francis Drake, who took St. Augustine from the Spanish.

Among the many activities planned for the evening are “Captain Blood” and Errol Flynn look-alike contests (with face painting and mustaches available for Errol Flynn impersonators), swordfighting demonstrations, and a discussion and sampling of the pirate’s favorite drinks, Rum and Grog, by Jamie Jackson of Pusser’s Rum.

Live music, visits from The Pirate Museum’s Captain Mayhem, and a black powder final salute will round out the evening.

This event is planned to appeal to the whole family (though only adults, of course, can participate in the drink tastings).

Admission: Free.

When? Saturday, April 11, 2015, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The screening of “Captain Blood” will begin at 6:15 p.m., and “The Sea Hawk” will begin at 8:45 p.m.

Where? The Colonial Quarter is located at 33 St. George Street in downtown St. Augustine.

Thank You, Comrade [S.O.B.]!

12 Apr

Photo below published April 11, 1937:

“Errol Flynn is pictured in a photography accompanying an ABC article lauding Hollywood actors and cinematographers for collecting money in support of Republican Spain (ABC, April 11, 1937, p. 4-5)”

Thank you, Comrade [S.O.B]!

“At a lunch with high-ranking military officers, one of them talked about “the heartfelt emotions and happiness the Spanish people felt that their hero of the screen and upholder of justice, Errol Flynn, was with them. The Spanish people would never forget this … I sat there in amazement, trying not to show surprise to be cast in such a role.” (Errol Flynn, “My Wicked, Wicked Ways.” New York: Cooper Square Press: Distributed by National Book Network, 2003. Orig. pub. in 1959, p. 230. Flynn eventually found out why he was being given the royal treatment and why people had such high expectations about his visit. On his last day in Spain his driver asked him when he was going to donate the money that he and his Hollywood friends had raised. It was then, according to Flynn’s autobiography, that Erben explained that the best way to go places was to say they were bringing $1 million dollars to help the cause. Again, according to Flynn, Erben said that all he wanted was a chance to work as a doctor, performing surgeries. “The only way I could do it and get by in style here was to use you.” To which Flynn responded, “Thank you, Comrade [S.O.B.]!” (Ibid., p. 235)”

Sally Frank Moore
Evening Herald Express

It’s Easter in Hollywood and naturally a time for celebration. And our Hollywood socialites are planning any number of gay Easter parties tomorrow.

One of the smartest, undoubtedly will be, the buffet supper the beautiful Dolores Del Rio and her husband, Cedric Gibbons, are giving tomorrow evening at their Santa Monica home. For Dolores and Cedric are among filmdom’s most noted hosts and hostesses.

In the afternoon, a few friends are coming over early to play tennis. Dolores, who is one of the film colony’s best players, joining them in the game.

In the evening, this group will be augmented by an imposing list of filmdom’s elite, Dolores receiving her guests in a gorgeous pair of blue hostess pajamas.

Included in the list of those bidden to the party and Messrs. and Mms. Robert Montgomery, Irving Thalberg (Norma Shearer), Merian Cooper (Dorothy Jordan), Joel McCrea (Francis Dee), David Selznick, Frederick Marsh, Donald Ogden Stewart, Philip Barry and Wells Root.

The Countess Di Frasso, Gloria Swanson, Jean Harlow, Ann Alvarado, Virginia Bruce, Lili Damita, Betty Hill, Katherine DeMille, Maureen O’Sullivan, Gwili Andre and Jack L. Warner, Herbert Marshall, William Powell, Bert Taylor, William Brown, King Vidor, John Farrow, Gene Markey, Whitney de Rham, Willis Goldbeck, Dr. Carl Volmoeller and Errol Flynn.

And here’s Bing Crosby’s wonderful performance of Easter Parade in Holiday Inn, with beautiful Marjorie Reynolds along for the ride. The Bingster was a long time friend of tge Flynnster, of course, and Marjorie Reynolds was Errol’s performing partner in Jack Benny’s USO shows during the Korean War.
