THE FAST AND FURIOUS LIFE OF ERROL FLYNN

Australia, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Homegrown)

Director: Simon Nasht

THE FAST AND FURIOUS LIFE OF ERROL FLYNN

Coloured by a career of salacious rumour, heart-breaking good looks and a ‘live fast, die young' modus operandi, Tasmanian-born Errol Flynn's life was the stuff of Hollywood legend. Endowed with physical attributes (you know what we're talking about) as mighty as his screen appeal, he eventually crumbled under the weight of stardom and the excesses of drugs and alcohol at age 50. His story fully unfolds in Tasmanian Devil: The Fast and Furious Life of Errol Flynn.
