The demanding Bette Davis supposedly didn't think he had any talent, but she agreed. She once said, “He was just beautiful, Errol.” Joan Crawford called him "the most beautiful man alive." You said it, ladies.
How does one properly capture the beauty that is Errol Flynn? He's equal parts boyish, handsome and sensual. It friging makes no sense.
Flynn also drank and partied and dabbled in "narcotics" (thanks for the euphemism, Wikipedia). In summary, he was a huge creep in his personal life. But when you stare into those eyes--seriously, he glistens on screen--you can forgive it a little. Sometimes, he just looks like a choir boy, like in this picture:
During the early part of his Hollywood career, Flynn was typecast as a swashbuckler in period films, and a war hero in his later work. He just looks the part here, doesn't he?
