Snippets survive
24 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three weeks ago there was a special about the career of Errol Flynn on the TURNER CLASSIC MOVIE channel on cable television. They do have several brief scenes (lasting about a minute or so) that were from WILLIAM TELL, and appeared int he special. The scenes were in color, and at least one showed some action involving Flynn. But there is no sound track that has been found. The scenes were well shot, and appeared of some interest. What the entire film would have been like is still a mystery.

The only thing regarding WILLIAM TELL that people remember (when reading Flynn's memoirs, MY WICKED, WICKED WAYS) is the draining of cash flow went the backers dropped out, and how co-star Bruce Cabot had all the property belonging to Flynn, his wife Patrice Wymore, and their children seized, in lieu of his salary. This appears to be a true story (the special about Flynn mentioned it), and David Niven also took a shot at Cabot's reputation in BRING ON THE EMPTY HORSES, but how completely true the story is, and how one sided our knowledge of the story is remains unexplained.
