Swashbuckling screen icon Errol Flynn, who made his way from Australia to Hollywood in the 1930s, comes to life in “The Last of Robin Hood,” a snapshot of the 1950s winter of his career — when he infamously pursued teenager Bevery Aadland. It stars Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon. Watch the glamorously saucy trailer below.
This latest behind-the-scenes Hollywood flick (See “Hitchcock,” “My Week with Marilyn”) from writers/directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (“Quinceanera”) bowed at Toronto last Fall. While critics were not in love with the film — with Variety citing that it “defangs” the “wild and crazy” source material” — other critics, such as Rex Reed per the trailer, admire Kline’s “king-size” performance as the illusive screen icon.
Samuel Goldwyn brings the film to US theaters on August 29.
