Errol Flynn

Errol Flynn, the Australian actor of notorious reputation, was born on this day in 1909 in Hobart Tasmania. What is probably not so well-known about him was that he was also an author, having penned one novel, Showdown, in 1946, and two volumes of autobiography, Beam Ends in 1937, and My Wicked, Wicked Ways in 1959. He died in October 1959. A posthumous volume of his collected writings, From a Life of Adventure: The Writings of Errol Flynn was published in 1980.
