Trailer: Kevin Kline Plays Errol Flynn in “The Last of Robin Hood”

posted by Nell Minow

Errol Flynn became one of the greatest movie stars of all time, specializing in swashbucklers like “Captain Blood” and “The AdveBeverly Aadland and Errol Flynn pose in costume for a skit they performed on the “The Red Skelton Show” that aired on Sept. 29, 1959, two weeks before Flynn’s death.

But the Tasmanian actor became almost as legendary for his off-screen debauchery as for his on-screen triumphs. Peter O’Toole plays a faded movie star who has had too many drinks and too many women, based on Flynn, in the delightful comedy, “My Favorite Year.”

In “The Last of Robin Hood,” Kevin Kline plays Flynn who, in the last year of his life, fell in love with a teenager named Beverly Aadland (he did not know she was underage).  Flynn put Aadland into his final film, “Cuban Rebel Girls.”

They were traveling together in Canada when he died.  Dakota Fanning plays Aadland, and Susan Sarandon plays her mother, who was accused of being unfit for allowing her then-15-year-old daughter to be romanced by Flynn.
