In the late 1930’s and early 1940’s, Errol Flynn was one of biggest stars in Hollywood. His most famous and notable role was that of The Adventures of Robin Hood in 1939. That film launched Flynn in to the premier action star on the silver-screen. Much is known about Flynn at the height of his career, but what happened after his star began to fade? The new film The Last of Robin Hood tells exactly that. Kevin Kline stars as Eroll Flynn in his last, but never boring, days full of scandals, a love affair, and the after effect of fame.
Watch the first trailer for The Last Robin Hood, starring Susan Sarandon, Dakota Fanning, and Kevin Kline. The film opens in theaters everywhere August 29th.
Synopsis: Errol Flynn, the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies' man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with an aspiring actress, Beverly Aadland. The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl’s fame-obsessed mother, Florence. It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother which only fed Florence’s need to stay in the spotlight. The Last of Robin Hood is a story about the desire for fame and the price it exacts (traileraddict.com).”
