Body Language: Louder Than Words

Last week I posted about Olivia de Havilland and her onscreen relationship with dashing Errol Flynn in the eight swashbuckling films they made together during the late 1930's and early '40's.

Although they portrayed romantic couples onscreen, a real-life love story never blossomed between them.

Flynn was married to French actress Lili Damita while he and Miss de Havilland were making pictures together. However, if he hadn't been, things probably would have turned out differently between them.

Both actors admit that they did have feelings for each other and that the chemistry was there. In doing a little research last week, I found pictures of Flynn with his wife, and others with him and Miss de Havilland in candid shots.

Take a look at the body language and tell me who he looks happier with.

If a picture really does say a thousand words, these photos are talking up a storm!

Error Flynn had a rather short life if I remember correctly, so I'm glad Miss Dehavilland made him laugh.

@Norma: You can say that again!

@Eve: You're right. He died at 50. Looks like he needed a shoulder to laugh on.
