Description

A hero to millions who adored his portrayals of Robin Hood and Fletcher Christian, Errol Flynn (1909– 59) lived a life that far surpassed any adventure he ever acted out on screen: exotic travels, criminal exploits, passionate love affairs, violent confrontations, scandals, and international fame. In this highly readable, witty and colourful autobiography, Flynn reveals himself and his remarkable life as he did nowhere else.   

The author

Errol Flynn was an Australian-born American actor. He was known for his romantic swashbuckler roles in Hollywood films and his flamboyant lifestyle. After starring in Captain Blood (1935), Flynn became an overnight sensation, quickly becoming typecast as a swashbuckler and a rogue in a number of successive films. He followed Captain Blood with The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936), and after his appearance as Miles Hendon in The Prince and the Pauper (1937), he was cast in his most celebrated role as Robin Hood in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) - his first film in Technicolor. He went on to appear in The Dawn Patrol (1938) with David Niven, Dodge City (1939), The Sea Hawk (1940) and Adventures of Don Juan (1948). Throughout the 1950s his health deteriorated due to heavy alcohol and drug abuse, and he died in 1959 of a heart attack. His autobiography, My Wicked, Wicked Ways was published posthumously later that year.
