#Fact
1 May have had oral cancer at the time of his death.
2 Often drank two or three quarts of vodka a day.
3 Although he played Anna Neagle's father in Let's Make Up (1954), he was almost five years her junior in real life.
4 Shortly before his death he had a tumor removed from his mouth.
5 He had two roles in common with Douglas Fairbanks: (1) Fairbanks played Robin Hood in Robin Hood (1922) while Flynn played him in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) and (2) Fairbanks played Don Juan de Maraña in The Private Life of Don Juan (1934) while Flynn played him in Adventures of Don Juan (1948).
6 Portrayed by Guy Pearce in Flynn (1993) and by Jude Law in The Aviator (2004).
7 While looking for native agricultural laborers in New Guinea in 1933, he was pursued and nearly captured by headhunters.
8 Mulholland Farm, Errol's old house, was located at 3100 Torreyson Place off Mulholland Drive overlooking the San Fernando Valley. Originally situated on 11 1/2 acres, the original house was last occupied by Rick Nelson, who bought it for $750k in 1980. His twin sons, Gunnar and Matthew Nelson, grew up in the house and were the last people to live in it. Unfortunately, due to years of neglect, the house and other structures (a pool, barn and a casino!) were demolished in 1988 and sub-divided into several smaller parcels. Justin Timberlake currently owns the large compound at the top of the property at the end of Torreyson Drive. On the left is the original entrance to Errol's property, Flynn Ranch Road, but it is now gated-closed. You can catch a glimpse of Mulholland Farm in it's heyday at the beginning of the short film "The Cruise Of The Zaca" from 1952. TCM shows it quite frequently as filler between movies.
9 Kevin Kline plays Flynn in a motion-picture version of his affair with 15-year-old Beverly Aadland in The Last of Robin Hood (2013).
10 At his funeral on October 19, 1959 his bronze casket, covered with yellow roses, was carried from the Church of the Recessional at Forest Lawn, Glendale, CA by Raoul Walsh, Mickey Rooney, Quinn "Big Boy" Williams, Jack Oakie, Otto Reichow and Mike Romanoff.
11 Since he was on the May 23, 1938 cover of Life magazine, a copy of which was placed in the Westinghouse Time Capsule at the 1939 World's Fair and not to be opened for 50 centuries, Errol Flynn will be remembered in thousands of years to come.
12 He is frequently mentioned in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' series as the idol of the character Nightcrawler.
13 He was a friend of Hermann Erben - monkey expert, drug dealer, Hitler impersonator and German agent who spent voluntarily three years in a Japanese internment camp in Shanghai.
14 According to his autobiography, Errol Flynn's mother, Marelle Young, was a descendant of Midshipman Edward ("Ned") Young, a Bounty mutineer who went to Pitcairn with Fletcher Christian. Young had four children with Toofaiti, Nancy, George, Robert and William, and three more with Christian's widow Mauatua, Edward, Polly and Dorothea. His descendants still live on Pitcairn, Norfolk and in New Zealand.
15 Dream project was a biopic about the notorious Australian-Irish outlaw Ned Kelly, which nearly got produced by Warner Brothers in the mid 1940s.
16 On arriving in Britain in 1933, he found an acting job with the Northampton Repertory Company, where he worked for seven months. However, it is disputed whether he performed at the 1934 Malvern Festival and in Glasgow and London's West End.
17 In his book, "My Wicked Wicked Ways", Flynn recounted that as a young man in Papua, New Guinea, he had many adventurous jobs as a gold prospector, slave recruiter, a diamond smuggler, and a manager of coconut and tobacco plantations, just to name a few. He also spent a short time as a cadet patrol officer until it was discovered that he had misrepresented himself. Unfortunately, his time in New Guinea came with a price. While there, Flynn contracted malaria, which would plague him for the rest of his life. It has been a matter of dispute as to whether all his stories of adventure were true, but many have concluded that even if only 25% percent were true, he certainly had an amazing life.
18 In the last year of his life he turned down an offer to star in a major swashbuckling series for US television, in which Flynn would play the same kind of character he had played in Captain Blood (1935), with younger stand-ins performing his stunts. "I knew it would be crap," he explained.
19 Mentioned in the Jimmy Buffett song, "Pencil Thin Mustache".
20 A recent Australian documentary on his life and career, narrated by Christopher Lee, included a film clip of Flynn being interviewed on his being nominated for the Academy Award for his critically acclaimed performance in The Sun Also Rises (1957). We are then told that the nomination "disappeared".
21 Though Flynn did most of his own stunts in Against All Flags (1952), he balked at the one involving sliding down through a sail on a rapier blade, which was originated by Douglas Fairbanks in The Black Pirate (1926); it was performed by a stunt double.
22 The underlying causes of his death were myocardial infarction, coronary thrombosis, coronary atherosclerosis, liver degeneration, liver sclerosis and diverticulitis of the colon.
23 Independent writer/director Patrick Stark is creating a dramatic feature about the last days of Flynn's life in Vancouver, British Columbia.
24 Best remembered by the public for his starring in swash-buckling adventure films.
25 In his final years he suffered from Buerger's disease, acute inflammation and thrombosis (clotting) of arteries and veins of the legs, hands and feet as a result of his excessive cigarette smoking.
26 Had a vasectomy in 1955.
27 Became seriously ill with liver failure in 1952 while filming The Story of William Tell (1953) in Rome.
28 He was considered for Leslie Howard's role in Gone with the Wind (1939). He was also allegedly considered for the role of Rhett Butler, but Bette Davis (who was to play Scarlett O'Hara) vetoed the idea.
29 Once stated that his only regret was his non-participation in World War II.
30 In the last two years of his life, Flynn caused a scandal by touring the world with his 15-year-old mistress Beverly Aadland, who was working as his secretary. Their affair was the subject of a 1961 book by Beverly's mother Florence Aadland entitled The Big Love', which describes how this mom intentionally pushed her daughter into the affair with Flynn. This affair is the subject of the movie The Last of Robin Hood (2013).
31 In the early days of establishing his Hollywood career, he passed himself off as Irish in the belief that few people knew of Australia. He was born, educated and began work in Australia, later drifting between Papua New Guinea and Sydney (rumoured to have been a fighter for PNG) before stumbling on to acting. The Australian film In the Wake of the Bounty (1933) captured some attention for him in the States and so, owing enormous debts to the Australian Taxation Office, he moved to America. He said to the ATO, "I'm willing to forget if you are".
32 Nearly died from food poisoning after eating uncooked ground hamburger meat mixed with raw egg yolk early in 1959.
33 A chain smoker, in the last year of his life, he underwent hospital tests to see whether he had throat cancer.
34 In The Case of the Curious Bride (1935), one of his earliest films, his role consisted of lying on a marble slab as a corpse. There was also a flashback sequence towards the end of the film showing how Flynn was killed. The film in question has appeared at least twice on Turner Classic Movies during Errol Flynn festivals despite his very limited (certainly less than two minutes) screen time.
35 Probably his most uncharacteristic screen appearance occurred in Thank Your Lucky Stars (1943) when he sang and danced his way through a pub number entitled "That's What You Jolly Well Get".
36 Through his mother, Flynn was descended from the illegitimate daughter of an unknown mother and Sir Richard Neville, 6th Earl of Salisbury and 16th Earl Consort of Warwick, 181th Knight of the Garter. Neville in his turn was descended, through his mother, from Thomas Holland, a stepson of Edward "the Black Prince" Plantagenet, son of King Edward III of England and father of the later King Richard II. Flynn played the Black Prince in The Dark Avenger (1955), commonly known in the USA as The Warriors.
37 His mother had Polynesian ancestry, from Tahiti, through her four great-grandmothers--the mutineers of HMS Bounty sailed from Tahiti to Pitcairn Island, taking some Tahitian women with them. As of 2005, there were an estimated 55 descendants of the mutineers still living on Pitcairn.
38 He was granted a 4-F deferment during World War II due to his weak heart, exacerbated by bouts of malaria and tuberculosis. During the filming of Gentleman Jim (1942) Flynn suffered a mild heart attack.
39 In 1980, author Charles Higham published a controversial biography, "Errol Flynn: The Untold Story," in which he alleged that Flynn was a fascist sympathizer who spied for the Nazis before and during World War II. In Disney's film The Rocketeer (1991), the major villain, Neville Sinclair, was a 1930s Hollywood actor who spied for the Nazis, an obvious reference to Higham's allegations about Flynn. The book also alleged he was bisexual and had affairs with Tyrone Power, Howard Hughes and Truman Capote. Subsequent biographies - notably Tony Thomas' "Errol Flynn: The Spy Who Never Was" (1990) - have denounced Higham's claims as fabrications. Flynn's political beliefs appear to have been left-wing. He was a strong supporter of the Spanish Republic and a fervent opponent of ultra-conservative Gen. Francisco Franco in the Spanish Civil War, and was a supporter of Fidel Castro's revolution in Cuba, even hosting a documentary titled The Truth About Fidel Castro Revolution (1959) shortly before his death. According to his own posthumous autobiography, "My Wicked, Wicked Ways", he admired Castro and considered him a personal friend.
40 His performance as Robin Hood in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) is ranked #16 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
41 Mentioned in the song "Blood on the Rooftops" by Genesis.
42 Declaring to his second wife that he wanted to experience everything in life, he began dabbling in opium in the late 1940s and quickly became a full-fledged addict. His opium addiction and the effects of the alcohol that ravaged his body over the years contributed to his premature death in 1959 at only age 50.
43 He and director Michael Curtiz made some of their best pictures together, but he despised Curtiz (which was mutual) and the two fought constantly whenever they worked together. Ironically, his first wife Lili Damita was previously briefly married to Curtiz.
44 Although Australian, his genealogy shows both British and Irish descent.
45 Although only 50, he succumbed to a massive heart attack at the apartment of Dr. Grant Gould in Vancouver while he was there to sell his yacht (The Zaca) to an old friend, George Caldough. The yacht was his "pride and joy", but due to financial difficulties, he was forced to sell it and had primarily lived on it during his final years. The autopsy showed he had the body of a 75-year-old man. His liver was so badly damaged that he could only have lived for another 9-12 months.
46 He and Olivia de Havilland acted together in 9 movies: The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), Captain Blood (1935), The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936), Dodge City (1939), Four's a Crowd (1938), The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939), Santa Fe Trail (1940), Thank Your Lucky Stars (1943) and They Died with Their Boots On (1941)
47 Warner Brothers' publicity department tried to claim that he was from Ireland, when he was in fact from Tasmania, the small island state of Australia.
48 His father, Theodore Flynn, taught biology at Queens College, Belfast.
49 He met his second wife while she was working at a snack counter in a courthouse during one of his rape trials.
50 It was during a Parkinson (1971) interview that his good friend David Niven revealed that during the filming of The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936), Flynn was busy on a horse during a break applying makeup with one hand whilst holding a mirror in the other. An extra seeing this assumed (like most of the people around) that he was gay, and decided to "pock" the horse up the behind with his lance - the horse bucked, throwing Flynn to the ground. He got to his feet and asked who had done that, the extra volunteered, thinking that this would only add to his embarrassment. However, Flynn dragged him from the horse and gave him a sound beating. They were the best of friends after that.
51 He was voted the 26th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
52 His father was head of the zoology department at the University of Tasmania.
53 Grandfather of Luke Flynn.
54 He was voted the 55th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
55 He claimed to be the great-great-great-great-grandson of HMS Bounty mutineer Edward "Ned" Young. However research suggests this was not actually true. Flynn portrayed Fletcher Christian in the film In the Wake of the Bounty (1933). He was also the 23rd great-grandson of Robert De Vere. In addition, he is the 15th cousin twice removed of Olivia de Havilland, who played Maid Marian, his love interest, in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938).
56 His son Sean Flynn appeared in a few films but didn't particularly like being an actor. He switched careers and was a freelance photojournalist during the Vietnam War. He disappeared with another journalist as they followed the US Army invasion into Cambodia and both were thought to have been captured and executed by Khmer Rouge guerrillas. He is the subject of the 1981 The Clash song, "Sean Flynn."
57 The phrase "In like Flynn," stems from his 1942 trial for statutory rape.
58 The hit song "Errol", by Australian band Australian Crawl, was about him.
59 Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#86). [1995]
60 Interred at Forest Lawn, Glendale, California, in the Garden of Everlasting Peace.
61 When banned from drinking on a film set, he would inject oranges with vodka and eat them during his breaks.
62 Was tried for statutory rape in 1942 but was acquitted.
63 It has been said that his 1959 autobiography, "My Wicked Wicked Ways," was originally to be called "In Like Me."
64 Father, with Lili Damita of photojournalist Sean Flynn (1941 - 1970).
65 Ranked #70 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997]
66 Father with Nora Eddington of Deirdre Flynn (born January 10, 1945) and Rory Flynn (born March 12, 1947).
67 Father, with Patrice Wymore of Arnella (25 December 1953 - 21 September 1998)

#Quote
1 I had now made about forty-five pictures, but what had I become? I knew all too well: a phallic symbol. All over the world I was, as a name and personality, equated with sex.
2 By instinct I'm an adventurer; by choice I'd like to be a writer; by pure, unadulterated luck, I'm an actor.
3 My job is to defy the normal.
4 I've made six or seven good films - the others, not so good.
5 I allow myself to be understood as a colorful fragment in a drab world.
6 Women won't let me stay single, and I won't let myself stay married.
7 I felt like an impostor, taking all that money for reciting ten or twelve lines of nonsense a day.
8 If I have any genius it is a genius for living.
9 It isn't what they say about you, it's what they whisper.
10 The public has always expected me to be a playboy, and a decent chap never lets his public down.
11 I intend to live the first half of my life. I don't care about the rest.
12 I can't reconcile my gross habits with my net income.
13 [last words] I've had a hell of a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every minute of it.
14 I like my whiskey old and my women young.
15 I do what I like.
16 They've great respect for the dead in Hollywood, but none for the living.
17 You once liked the blissful mobility, but then you wonder, who's the real you? And who's the chap on the screen? You know, I catch myself acting out my life like a goddamn script.
