great actress and the real life tension between Flynn and Davis adds chemistry to their on screen performances.
Bette Davis wanted Laurence Olivier to play the role of
Warner's casting Errol Flynn. Flynn then went ahead and tried to have the title changed from the original
stage title ELIZABETH THE QUEEN to THE KNIGHT THE LADY . When
Did you know?
After the Queen B. Watched a screening of The Private Lives of Elizabeth Essex once again in the seventies she had told to her friend and her co star Olivia De havilland that Errol Flynn
performance was very good :said Davis
" I think he was very good no ....he was Marvelous and I was wrong all the time"
I couldn't agree more!!!
