Summary
  • "Errol Flynn set the standard for the modern action hero in films like The Adventures of Robin Hood, Dodge City, and The Sea Hawk. This biography follows Flynn from his birth in Tasmania, Australia, in 1909, through his exuberant years in Hollywood, to his death in Vancouver, Canada, in 1959 after years of alcohol and drug abuse had ruined him. It includes analysis of his films, discussion of the 1943 rape trial that changed his life, a survey of the FBI's infamous surveillance, and the first detailed account of his television appearances in the 1950s. First-hand interviews with Flynn's friends and colleagues are complemented by research from FBI files, correspondence, Flynn's diary, and other sources."
  • "Illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs, this text illuminates the life and work of a complex, ultimately self-destructive idol."--BOOK JACKET
