Men in tights

From 70 years ago, one of my favortie old movies, Adventures of Robin Hood. I think this was one of Errol Flynn's best movies. Also, I've always liked the man who plays the villian, the Sheriff of Nottingham, Basil Rathbone.

I think Basil was the best of the many actors who played Sherlock Holmes, although Jeremy Brett was no slouch.

And here's some Errol Flynn trivia - Whatever became of his son, Sean?

Answer - We don't know. He's still missing in Cambodia.

Interesting. I don't think I'd even heard of Sean Flynn. I didn't read the whole article, but enough to satisfy my curiosity.

I think the only reason I knew it, Fish, was I probably spotted it in the Stars & Stripes newspaper many, many years ago and for some reason it stayed back in corner of my feeble mind waiting for an opportunity to resurface and since I was posting about his dad it just seized the chance [as who knows when I'll ever think of Errol Flynn again] and popped out of my memory. Or sumtin' like that. :-)

Sean Flynn was killed by the Khimer Rouge. He was a Photo Journalist in Vietnam. I don't know if they ever recovered his and his partners remains.

Robin Hood was a pretty good fellar, marry band of men and all. He stole from the rich and gave to the poor, but, isn't it more like tax refund?

Interesting. This is the first time to learn of any of this for me. Thats why I like poppin in here from time to time - there is always a surprise waiting around to read!

Thanks, Layla. I don't know why, but I was always fascinated with trivia and have always read the small print on the back of breakfast cereal boxes.

I don't know where your comment has been, Dan. All of a sudden it just showed up.

Steal from the rich, give to the poor. I think that's the Democrat's slogan but they payoff their contributors and lobbyists first, then give what's left to the poor.

It's funny how politicians berate rich folk but the monied class is usually their first stop when they're out begging for campaign donations. Plus, I don't have anything against rich people as they give me a goal to strive for. Plus, I've never seen a poor person have to meet a payroll.
