"My favorite movie about the theater is ALL ABOUT EVE, but then again that movie is my favorite movie about everything about movies and love and lust and life itself." - Jay

"TOPSY-TURVY perfectly captures the feeling of imminent failure that you get when you're in rehearsals." - Peggy

We Can't Wait Addendum: "The Last of Robin Hood"

In January we did a countdown of 2014 movies we were most looking forward to. With the distribution news that The Last of Robin Hood, an Errol Flynn bio of sorts with Kevin Kline will be released I feel the need to give it a shout out.

Errol Flynn keeps entering my consciousness when I least expect him lately. I was talking to Diana (currently in LA with Anne Marie to report on the TCM Film Festival for y'all right her) the other day over dinner and she brought him up. She loves the swashbuckling movie star and enjoyed the film at TIFF. I was also at a very chic event celebrating the photography of George Hurrell and there was a huge absolutely stunning portrait of Errol Flynn mixed with several perfect Joan Crawfords.

So when I read the news today, I became properly stoked at last. I love the poster's clever arrowhead riff (pictured left top) on that most boring of poster tropes, one visual stripe per star. I was once friendly with the film's directors (though we've lost touch). And, out of curiousity, I looked up a picture of Errol with his inappropriately young girlfriend at the end of his life and my jaw dropped...

Kevin Kline and Dakota Fanning couldn't be better casting, could they?

It is shocking just how that picture makes them look like Kevin Kline and Dakota Fanning. I'm intrigued!

Thanks for the heads up Nathaniel. This is one I'll definitely be seeing, love the cast and have read much about that wild ride that was Flynn's life. The resemblance is uncanny.

Diana and I talked about this at dinner last night too! It was totally off my radar but now it's skyrocketed to #1 on my Can't Wait list.

I didn't read right and thought that was a picture of kevin and dakota! lol they definitely look their parts.

Wow. That man was only 49 or 50 when that picture was taken.

He certainly had an interesting life, but all that hard living took its toll.

Amanda McBroom wrote a beautiful song called "Errol Flynn." It's not about him, per se, but it's a great piece of songwriting that uses him as part of its narrative. Amanda McBroom and David Campbell both have great recordings of it out there.
