Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland go on a promotional tour for their upcoming movie, Santa Fe Trail, during a chilly night. (1940)
Errol Flynn was her first love. Her eyes fill with tears when she talks of his death — “I had cried for 24 hours when I first heard the news about it.”
She was then a starry-eyed 19 year old when she made Captain Blood in 1935, her first movie with The Great Swashbuckler. Their chemistry and the success of their original film received such a positive response that they were to make a total of eight films together courtesy of Warner Brothers.
