Serendipity Sunday - Trick or Treason
Every movie buff knows of the swashbuckling Australian actor that played in Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Sun Also Rises and Sea Hawk to name a few. Errol Flynn played opposite all the great actresses of the day, including my favourite, Bette Davis in The Sisters. We all know that this dashing young man was the matinee idol of the late 30's and through the 40's... but did you know he was investigated by the FBI for Treason??
Released under the Freedom of Information Act is this detailed collection in PDF form of FBI documents, with some blocks of writing blacked out.
You can read this article about it in The New Statesman and this one at the blog Facts and Falsehoods. I am sure there are also others online.
What do you think really happened?
