Last Refuge of a Scoundrel

It’s despicable how Rory Flynn sullies her father’s ne’er-do-well legacy when she describes him as “graced with a combination of charm, eloquence, and courage.” O, wretched lies for a scandalous rogue!

Daddy was Golden Age movie star Errol Flynn, who swashbuckled to fame in Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk but achieved immortality as the archetypal Hollywood cautionary tale. Skirt-chaser. Booze hound. Druggie. Coward. Those are some of the more politic things Hollywood called Flynn as his health failed and his box office plummeted.

Rory says bunk -- and a lot of other nice things about pop -- at Femmes Fatales & Fantasies. She’ll also sign copies of her book, The Baron of Mulholland: A Daughter Remembers Errol Flynn.
