This is the question that leaves
the reader's imagination buzzing
along after the final sentence is
read. The story has a multi-level
impact and I especially like the
meaning that lleywood Broun
once gave it:
"We cai do anything," he said,
"We must do anything, raUier
than try to go it alor.e, with our
helpless and terrified loneliness
clutching at us in the night."
The TV version, a magnificent
ly staged color production, was
not as subtle as the book. Where
the book buill slowly but relent
lessly toward its climax, the three
acts in the teleplay each generat
ed their own chills. Where the
book po'trayed Flora as an inno
cent, sweet child, the teleplay dis
torted her character to make her
a weirdy, presumably to expedite
the sus-K'nse-generating appara
tus. The juxtapositions of scenes
by the TV adapter, James t'osti
gan, nevertheless remained re
markably faithful to the spirit of
the story. And no pun intended.

HOLLYWOOD lUPI' Callow,

Hollywood with the confidence of
a platcon of marines.

this big Irish palooka comes
along and makes screaming head
lines with his romances and stuff.
"The studio brass would give
all of us heavies hell for weeks,
but Flynn would charm his' way
out of the dog house in five min
utes." Flynn always admitted he was
something less than a great ac
tcr, but from his very first lead
ing role the magnetism of star
dom came . across.
After playing a corpse in his
first picture. "The Case of The
Curious Bride," he was assigned
a miniscule role in a Turkey
titled "Don't Bet On Blondes." It
was enough for Flynn's engaging.
guileless grin to catch the eye of
the Brothers Warner.
Star In "Captain Blood"1
In his third movie he starred
in the title role of "Captain
Blood." Like they say in Holly
wood, he became a star over
night. Love scenes and fights duels,
fist fights, wrestling matches- and
barroom brawls were his cine
matic strong points, perhaps his
only points as a performer.
These limited talents were
enough to earn him 10 million
dollars and world wide fame.
When he appeared in dull movies
the public forgave him his pri
vate life more than making up
for the duds.
In 1942 he played his biggest
off-screen role during a lurid
court battle in which he was ac
cused of statutory rape by Pejgy
La-ue Satterlee, 16. and Betty
It was a front page carnival
throughout the fall and winter of
that year. He won the case and
his popularity soared.
Then there ere his fights.
Flynn a f'rmcr amateur boxer
was sort of an uncrowned
champ of the bistro-weights.
Going to the Dogs
Nightclub outings frequently re
sulted in brawls. Among Flynn's
opoonents were Canadian million
aire Duncan McMartin, Daa Top
ping, Jimmy Fidler and director
John llustcn. . N ,'v
Appeared In Costume Epics
An imieccable dresser off
screen, the dashing playboy rare
ly appeared in films other than
costume epics. He cut a mighty
figure in tights, flaring capes
and boots. '
At the height of his career, in
the early 40s, Flynn became a
social lion among Hollywood's
elite. He held a position some
what similar to Frank Sinatra's
current pinnacle high llama of
the high livers.
He bought a huge white ranch
house atop Mulholland Drive,
overlooking both the Pacific
Ocean and Los Angeles in one
side, and the San Fernanlo .Val
ley on the other. He entoitained
lavishly, lustily and, accorling to
his critics, lasciviously. ' i 1
But Flynn was no crudefrough
neck. ' His home was tasbfully
furnished and suoerb art works
from every corner of the rvorld
crowded the rooms. t
Asked about the house shirtly
before his death, he said it had
gone for taxes, adding. "On of
my wives nationalized it."i He
was deeply fond of the home, but
he would rather make jokei than
let anyone suspect the sentiment
he felt. ii
As his career zoomed from
"Chtrge cf The Light Brigade"
to "The Adventures of Robin
Ho d" to "Gentleman Jin," Er
rol Flynn was one of the busiest
and most successful sUrs in
Hollywood, ar.d he speet the
rroney as fast as it rolled in
on fast cars, fast women and
slow yachts. '
