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 »

The man who played Captain Blood in 1935, plays a corpse in what, 1935. How can this be? If Kevin Costner made a great corpse in the Big Chill (and still is a great corpse) then Errol Flynn's cameo as a corpse has got Kevin beat hands down. Really this is a great little film and the reason why the films of the thirties and forties beat the ones of the nineties. These blokes knew how to crackle and the dames knew how to fizz. I'd give my eye teeth to see the many films that the studios have allowed to disappear or be destroyed because I bet there are lots of gems like this one. Warren William is so different from Raymond Burr, but in his tragically short life he brought some great entertainment. Add another 10 stars for Allen Jenkins. Terrific all round flick.
