Fifty years after his death, people are still fascinated by Errol Flynn. The romantic star of dozens of Hollywood movies, Flynn’s real life was in fact far more adventurous than any of his films. In a life dedicated to the pursuit of pleasure, Flynn became notorious for his love affairs, scandals and rebellious nature. But there was another, much less well known side to his character. He was a fine writer, both of novels and journalism, wrote well reviewed novels and reported from wars and revolutions. Among his scoops was the first interview with the newly victorious Fidel Castro who Flynn tracked down in his mountain hideaway in Cuba.
In Tasmanian Devil we discover the unknown Flynn, from his troubled childhood in Tasmania to his death, just fifty years later, in the arms of his teenage lover. We hear from his surviving children, friends and colleagues and discover an amazing life of almost unbelievable events. His was a life well lived.
