Errol Flynn’s Cuban adventures

Newspaper articles written by film star Errol Flynn documenting his last years spent in Cuba with Fidel Castro’s rebels have been unearthed in a university library.

Mention the name of Errol Flynn, and an image of a larger-than-life, swashbuckling screen hero comes to mind. Or the sly grin of a sexual athlete who sparked the saying: “In like Flynn.”

But towards the end of his life, Flynn was at the epicentre of Fidel Castro’s Cuban revolution.

It was a surprise to discover the famous actor moonlighted as a newspaper correspondent who wrote a number of articles about his adventures.

His features “Me and Castro” and “I fought with Castro” for the New-York Journal American remained unread for 50 years, buried in the archives of the University Of Texas at Austin’s Center for American History.

I have always been a fan of Flynn’s films and believe he was a far better actor than he gave himself credit for.
