Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
How badass was Errol Flynn? Books upon books upon books have been written about his exploits onscreen and off that would make Richard Harris cringe, Russell Crowe sick with envy and Colin Farrell vomit all over himself with disgust!
And yet that man could wear a pair of tights like nobody’s business. He could sweet talk any lady, young or old, and be a charming bastard the whole while. Case in point his historic portrayal of Robin Hood, one of the most charismatic performances ever captured on film. When Flynn duels with Basil Rathbone magic was caught. In a lot of ways I think Rob Reiner was able to capture some of that same lighthearted glee in The Princess Bride.
Anyway, today’s pic is a script meeting on the set of The Adventures of Robin Hood. Most of the stars are present and it’s yet another behind the scenes shot that makes me wish I could have been a fly on the wall, listening in on the conversation.
Our own Master Harold J. Knowles sent this one over. Thanks, bossman! Click to embiggen!
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic pays tribute to one of the most amazing adaptations of brotherly love ever committed to film.
