Description by OLDIES.com:
Join me on this incredible journey of Errol Flynn's quest for an Oscar. Errol goes from complete obscurity to one of the most sought-after men in Hollywood. Men wanted to be him, women wanted to be with him. Errol on the other hand, wasn't particularly interested in acting. He was a cadet, an overseer at a copra plantation, he ran a charter schooner and he mined gold, to name only a few of his ventures all before the age of 21. He was a free spirit who played by his own rules, much to the chagrin of the Hollywood producers. He was up for any role and would play it so convincingly that it transported the viewer into another world. This book reminisces about the wonderful world of the motion picture experience in the 30's, 40's and 50's, when going to the movies was an event, where you would get a movie program and live organ music would fill the ornately decorated theater. We learn about the most loved man-of-the-people, Robin Hood, to the most audacious pirate in The Seahawk, to the bravest soldier as General Custer. You will be treated to over 200 photographs of Errol Flynn in his many movie roles, as well as, candid images most never before published. There are rare artwork posters from around the world, and some unique Errol Flynn items depicted you might not know exist. This book includes Errol Flynn's complete filmography with a short synopsis of each movie and the entire cast. Whether you are familiar with Errol Flynn and his body of work, or a newcomer, this book will definitely give you an insight into all the different aspects of his career in the movies. To quote Jack Warner of the famous Warner Brothers Studio, "He was all the heroes in one magnificent, sexy, animal package...he showered an audience with sparks, when he laughed, when he fought, or when he loved. I just wish we had someone around today half as good as Flynn."
