STILL IN VOGUE,,, HAS ALWAYS BEEN,,, THE REAL-LIFE ROGUE,,, ERROL FLYNN.
on January 18, 2018
Most people remember Errol Flynn as the swashbuckling hero of Hollywood films. But few know that he was also a brilliant writer. During one of his real-life adventures in an exotic area of the world, he had time to kill, and he used it to memorize every word of an unabridged Webster's dictionary. Later, his subsequent books reflected the awesome vocabulary that he had acquired. Errol's acting genius was also unsurpassed. One of his movie co-stars, Bette Davis, had at one time underestimated Errol's skill as an actor, and she had a low opinion of him. As a result, during the filming of one scene in the movie "Elizabeth And Essex", she was supposed to slap him. But instead of faking it, she hauled off and really slugged the surprised Errol, nearly causing him to lose his balance. The scene was left in the movie, and if you watch closely, you can see the fury flashing in Errol's eyes as his momentary instinct was to slug her back. Luckily for Bette that Flynn controlled his temper. Years later, Ms. Davis confessed that she had been wrong about Errol, and she admitted that he was indeed an accomplished actor. Unfortunately, Flynn had already passed away, so he never heard her apology. Anyway, I'm sure that wherever Errol Flynn's spirit is today (hopefully not still at Mulholland Drive) he is occupied with new and more exciting things.
