Objective Burma (1945): Errol Flynn During Wartime

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 24, 2020

It’s nearly ubiquitous for all the old war movies to open with an instructive title card supplying some context and placing us in the scenario at hand. While not the apex of visual storytelling, it does serve a concrete purpose. Objective Burma is, of course, about the Burma campaigns — read more

The Alternate Movie Title Game (Volume 5 - Errol Flynn Edition)

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Apr 9, 2020

Here are the rules: We will provide an "alternate title" for a classic movie and ask you to name the actual film. Most of these are pretty easy. Please answer no more than three questions per day so others can play. You may have an answer other than the intended one--just be able to defend it! Good read more

The Sea Hawk (1940): Errol Flynn Against The Spanish Armada

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Sep 12, 2019

Anyone who knows even a smidgeon about historical dates knows what the big to-do with 1588 is. If anything, 1588 automatically means the sinking of the Spanish Armada by Queen Elizabeth’s forces. So when a film opens in Spain in 1585 we already have a good idea of where we might be going. It& read more

Dodge City (1939): An Errol Flynn Western

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Sep 10, 2019

The year is 1866. The Civil War is over and anyone with vision is moving west. One such outpost is Kansas where the railway is replacing the stagecoach. It’s a world of iron men and iron horses. Because a place like the notorious Dodge City is a “town that knew no ethics but cash and kil read more

On Blu-ray: Errol Flynn in The Sea Hawk (1940)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Feb 6, 2019

I’m always delighted to watch Errol Flynn in any kind of movie, but like many film fans, I find him most irresistible in his swashbucklers. There’s a lightness to him in these roles; partly because of his easy athleticism, but also because he never seems to be taking things too seriously read more

MY WICKED WICKED WAYS: The Legend of Errol Flynn (1985)

Stardust and Shadows Posted by Terry on Oct 23, 2018

Firstly I can say  that I am a  big Errol Flynn  fan who doesn’t  think he  has gotten what he deserves   in terms of  recognition from Hollywood.   That doesn’t  cloud me in thinking that everything a  “Star” did was correct or wonderful that it  deserves  to be  read more

Fridays With Errol Flynn: The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)

Originally published February 12th, 2014 Comedy Wednesday continues after a week’s absence with Michael Curtiz’s 1938 action/adventure romp, The Adventures of Robin Hood.  My professor appears to have good taste because this was also suggested to me a year or so ago by blog reader, Chip! read more

Fridays With Errol Flynn: Gentleman Jim (1942)

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Mar 18, 2016

After watching Errol Flynn corral the Old West in Dodge City (1939) and sail the seven seas as The Sea Hawk (1940s) it’s simultaneously refreshing and bizarre watching him play an average bank teller turned pugilist in Gentleman Jim. Unlike other boxing movies where the rise to the top and the read more

Fridays with Flynn moves from the plains of the heartland to the high seas with a retread of a film Flynn made five years earlier. Swashbucklers don’t necessarily thrill me, but even I couldn’t resist the breathless excitement that came from watching Flynn in Captain Blood (1935). By the read more

The Adventurous Errol Flynn

Timeless Hollywood Posted by Michele on Jul 18, 2015

Originally from Australia Errol Flynn was handsome, charming, witty, athletic, adventurous, mischievous, a playboy and loved sailing. He became an overnight sensation with the release of Captain Blood in 1935. He is best known for his sword fights and swashbuckler films. In the late 30’s and early read more

Dodge City (1939) with Errol Flynn

Classic Film Freak Posted by Greg Orypeck on May 14, 2015

Share This! “No law west of Chicago . . . west of Dodge City no god.” — Dr. Irving (Henry Travers) Although not much outside of women and drink, perhaps sailing, seriously interested Errol Flynn, he was possibly a little concerned about how his English/Irish/Australian accent—take your pick—would read more

Mara Maru (1952) with Errol Flynn and Ruth Roman

Classic Film Freak Posted by Orson De Welles on Mar 5, 2015

Share This! Menace and Love-Madness! Plunder and Lust! Errol Flynn in the 1950s gets little mention, and perhaps justifiably so. His last contract with Warner Brother ran its course after 1953’s The Master of Ballantrae, to be followed by increasingly dire decline of the former matinee idol. T read more
