Errol Flynn (1909-1959) was not a star of the 50sand 60s. His heyday came in the late 30s and early 40s. The description of his characters is right on though. Major movies during his career include: Flynn was alcoholic and notoriously promiscuous, supposedly giving rise to the saying "in like Flynn." His career took a nosedive when he was accused of statuatory rape in 1942, even though he was acquitted. He died of a heart attack in 1959.
