Happy Birthday Errol Flynn!

Remembering one of the great stars of Old Hollywood and a severely underrated actor.

My picks for essential Flynn:
"Captain Blood" (1935)
"The Charge of the Light Brigade" (1936)
"The Prince and the Pauper" (1937)
"The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938)
"The Dawn Patrol" (1938)
"DodgeCity" (1939)
"Virginia City" (1940)
"The Sea Hawk" (1940)
"They Died with their Boots on" (1941)
"Gentleman Jim" (1942)
"Edge of Darkness" (1942)
"Objective, Burma!" (1945)
"It's a Great Feeling" (1949)
(Flynn's hilarious uncredited cameo makes the entire picture worth seeing!)
Not a bad legacy to leave behind if you're an actor - some of WB biggest, most entertaining and most successful films of the 30's and 40's!

He also has a brief but funny cameo in "Lady From Shanghai".
