Errol Flynn

ERROL FLYNN (1909-1959), born Errol Leslie Flynn
This Tasmanian devil led a life that was hard and fast, but he was a better actor than many gave him credit for.

The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)Haven't you seen The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)? He defined this role, and his characterization is the one that all others are measured by. Don't miss this.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

The Prince and the Pauper (1937) Many think of Errol as a ladies' man, but here in a small role that shines, his rapport with kids is evident. The story is an excellent one as well, good for the whole family.
Captain Blood (1935) He's gorgeous here, which is an added plus. Great story, good romance, excellent acting and swashbuckling to boot.
Cry Wolf (1947) A little-known thriller with a great performance by Errol. No tights anywhere, yet he does a good job.
Too Much Too Soon (1958) Here he proved that he could be a serious actor as well. Biopic in which he played John Barrymore, who'd been a lifelong friend of his.
