ERROL FLYNN’S BIRTHDAY TODAY would have been 100 years old

It is now 100 years since one of the most charismatic men Hollywood has ever seen was born. But Flynn was so much more interesting than a Hollywood heart throb, his autobiography My Wicked Wicked Ways is the most entertaining read I’ve ever had and the most exciting and crazy parts are before he became a movie star. He was on trial for example in New Guinea when about 18 for murder, he did kill the guy but it was proved to be self defense as Flynn was going gold prospecting with some workers (little more than slaves) when they were attacked by a tribe in a rain forest. Now a lot of what he did was pretty objectionable but makes for an incredible read. His son Sean was also adventurous at heart but paid a bigger price as while working as a freelance journalist he was killed in Vietnam.

I cannot recommend the book enough.
