As Shakespeare said, and said quite truly,
Of the handsome and unruly,
'Golden boys and girls all must
As chimney-sweepers, come to dust'.
This handsome creature, Errol Flynn,
Who put the ladies in a spin,
And caused the silver screen to glow,
Was born a hundred years ago!
And so Tasmania celebrates
One of its most auspicious dates.
'Mad and Bad' but charming too.
It's sad what a hundred years can do!
Another heart-throb here:
Oh my grandmother adored him! Because of that, I have seen his movies. He was quite the swashbuckling swordsman.
I didn't know he was born in Tasmania, and yes, it's sad that life is so beautiful and so short.
I did love to see his pictures, he was gorgeous.
I read David Niven's books, The Moon's a Balloon and Bring on The Empty Horses and Errol Flynn features in there. They certainly had some rip roaring times together.
There's hundreds of unsung heart-throbs out there...
no one writes poems about them :(((
