The Rock-itt : May 2012
Errol sighed with relief at the sight of Tuperselai unharmed. The spear had gone in right between the eyes of the animal. Errol looked at her with admiration for he couldn’t imagine any other young woman that he had ever known who would have been as courageous as his little Papuan beauty. Then and there on the banks of the Laloki River Errol took Tuperselai in his arms and the barrier had come down as they made beautiful love. Enough to scare the toughest of men let alone a young girl The stalemate had been broken, never again did Tuperselai refuse Errol’s advances and they enjoyed a blissful life together. From then on they looked forward to seeing each other when the day’s work was over. They ate, drank, and made love as only young lovers can do. Errol now believed his life was complete. But one day som ething happened that changed Errol’s life as well as the world forever. He received a cable from Tahiti. It had been forwarded to New Guinea from Sydney, Australia and was from Joel Swartz, one of the chaps he had taken up the Sepik River quite a while back. Swartz always said he would get in touch with Errol one day and lo and behold here it was. The cable read this way. Mr Errol Flynn, Sailors Rest, Woolloomooloo, Sydney: Offer you fifty pounds all expenses, come at once, play part of Fletcher Christian in picture entitled ‘In the Wake of the Bounty’ being made. Tahit cable collect, Joel Swartz. The beautiful Island of Tahiti in all its magnificent glory Even Pablo Picasso f ell In love with the beauty of Tahiti Although Swartz had said that he would definitely seek Errol out one day, now that it had actually happened Errol was in a quandary. Here he was, every penny he had in the world tied up in a tobacco plantation and now a cable asking him to go to Tahiti to act in a film about Captain Bligh’s mutineer ship, Bounty. How could he drop everything and just leave it all behind? The plantation was slowly getting on its feet and he had everything he wanted right here in New Guinea. W hy should he just walk away from it? . But as always, the lure of adventure, something new, the excitement of a new venture was so enticing. But wait a minute, Errol didn’t know the first thing about acting, or so he thought. To hell with it he thought, why not! Yes, he’d heard lots about the beautiful island called Tahiti with its Polynesian beauties and their swaying hips. Errol threw his head back and laughed. Yes,why not give it a go. Captain William Bligh of the Bounty If only Errol would have known earlier how this chap would change his life forever Well readers, here we go again, Errol taking off for Tahiti, and to act in a movie. The world for Errol Flynn as he knew it was about to change forever. So stay tuned as a new era in ‘Hobart to Hollywood’ is about to unravel and make its entrance.
