Storyline

The story of Tasmanian-born actor Errol Flynn whose short & flamboyant life, full of scandals, adventures, loves and excess was largely played out in front of the camera - either making movies or filling the newsreels and gossip magazines. Tragically he was dead from the effects of drugs and alcohol by the time he was only 50 & the myths live on. But there is another side of Flynn that is less well known - his ambitions to be a serious writer and newspaper correspondent, his documentary films and his interest in the Spanish Civil War and Castro's Cuba Written by Anonymous

Awesome, unbiased, entertaining.
1 July 2007 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this film as part of the Sydney Film Festival and I loved every minute of it. Christopher Lee's narration was great and the stories and anecdotes were wildly entertaining. Errol Flynn was a fascinating person both on and off-screen and this documentary explores the highs and lows of his life and career with a great deal of empathy. The film covers all stages of his life: including his childhood in Tasmania (and distaste for authority), his pirate-esquire exploits in New Guinea, his sudden and massive rise to fame, his turbulent relationships with women, his dubious relationship with the law and media (including unfounded accusations claiming he was a Nazi!), his battle with alcohol (among other things) and well-hidden health problems, his revolutionary pro-peace stance and little-known friendship with Fidel Castro... This is a great tribute to an amazing performer and an amazing human being.
