Errol Flynn


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 :(((
