Erroll Flynn: Buckle My Swash, Matey

Looking back through the mists of movie history, it seems like the transition from saving the British Empire to saving the American West was a natural for Erroll Flynn.

But on closer examination, the legendary Aussie swashbuckler with his distinctive accent and mannerisms was anything but a natural for leading roles in classics like They Died With Their Boots On and Montana (photo).

That he succeeded so magnificently is a story in itself.
