TCM SPOTLIGHT: ERROL FLYNN ADVENTURES

Restored and Remastered Errol Flynn Classics New to DVD August 3

Desperate Journey  ∙  Northern Pursuit  ∙  Edge of Darkness Uncertain Glory  ∙  Objective , Burma!

Burbank, Calif., April 14, 2010 ľ WHV is giving fans the opportunity to experience the man Entertainment Weekly named one of the "100 Greatest Movie Stars of All Time" in an adrenaline charged collection of films starring the unforgettable legend, Errol Flynn. Each film* will make its restored and remastered debut on DVD for the first time on August 3, 2010 in Turner Classic Movies' Spotlight: Errol Flynn Adventures. Presented by Warner Home Video (WHV), the 5-disc set will include an arsenal of powerful films that celebrate the charismatic and legendary hero who became known to many as "The Baron." Each disc boasts an impressive array of bonus content and rare footage, some never before available on DVD. The collection includes: Desperate Journey, also starring Ronald Reagan, Northern Pursuit, Edge of Darkness, Uncertain Glory, and Objective, Burma! (SRP $49.92).  

One of the greatest movie swashbucklers of the early sound period, Flynn was chosen by Empire Magazine as one of the "100 Sexiest Stars in Film History" in 1995 (issue #86). His debonair attitude and notorious off-screen life continues to make him one of the most compelling actors in Hollywood history. With a combination of natural athleticism and magnetic good looks, Flynn became one of the most popular and highly paid stars of the 1930s and 1940s, and his films continue to be sought after by fans around the world.
