In The Case of the Curious Bride (1935), one of Errol Flynn's earliest films, his role consisted of lying on a marble slab as a corpse. There was also a flashback sequence towards the end of the film showing how Flynn was killed. The film in question has appeared at least twice on Turner Classic Movies during Errol Flynn festivals despite his very limited (certainly less than two minutes) screen time. See more »

this is a well directed film with clever dialog and a not so great story line . the acting is more than adequate. Allen Jenkins , warren William , warren hymer and Olin Howard play their stock characters with their usual aplomb.i was especially interested in the scenes of san Francisco in the early thirties without the bay or golden gate bridges.the screen writers obviously enjoyed themselves ie.naming a flop house hotel in south san Francisco the "fremont hotel" as a play on the plush "fairmont" hotel on knob hill.the film also is noted as Errol Flynn's first appearance in an American film wherein he played a stiff which some might consider a precursor of his acting style.
