Subtitle: "The Autobiography Of Errol Flynn". Errol
Flynn's extraordinary life story, told in his own inimitable
racy style. He is best remembered for his screen portrayals of
"Robin Hood" and "Captain Blood".
'The most entertaining autobiography ever by an actor' -- Jeffrey Meyers 'Its greatest distinction is that it manages to pass beyond the conventionally "frank" to the unconventionally truthful in its portrait of an engaging but by no means overscrupulous romantic extrovert' Times Literary Supplement 'A major autobiography in the tradition of Cellini, Casanova and Frank Harris. Perhaps it is not the book to leave alone in the house with your daughter, but Flynn was not the man to leave in the house with your daughter.' Guardian 'The confessions of a rake, unsparing of himself or anyone else' Newsweek 'An obstinately unabashed report' New Yorker
Errol Flynn was an Australian-born American actor. He was known for his romantic swashbuckler roles in Hollywood films and his flamboyant lifestyle. After starring in Captain Blood (1935), Flynn became an overnight sensation, quickly becoming typecast as a swashbuckler and a rogue in a number of successive films. He followed Captain Blood with The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936), and after his appearance as Miles Hendon in The Prince and the Pauper (1937), he was cast in his most celebrated role as Robin Hood in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) - his first film in Technicolor. He went on to appear in The Dawn Patrol (1938) with David Niven, Dodge City (1939), The Sea Hawk (1940) and Adventures of Don Juan (1948). Throughout the 1950s his health deteriorated due to heavy alcohol and drug abuse, and he died in 1959 of a heart attack. His autobiography, My Wicked, Wicked Ways was published posthumously later that year.
