SUMMARY

On April 6, 1970, the war photographer Sean Flynn rode his motorcycle into a roadblock, was captured by the Vietcong, and vanished into the jungle. The son of Errol Flynn shared his father's good looks, charm, athleticism, courage, and artistic talent. But Sean also inherited his father's love of risk, compelling him to lead an equally romantic, but sadly brief life. Inherited Risk, the story of both men's chillingly similar lives, begins with Errol. Born in Australia, his mother either abused him or ignored him. He spent his early life in the savage outposts of New Guinea, alternately as a tobacco planter, gold prospector, bird trapper, diamond smuggler, and slave trader. By the time fame arrived, drinking, drugs, and sex with underage girls assured him legendary status, but also a reckless and early demise. Sean was obsessed with his father, a remote and mythical figure. Never able to break free from Errol's overpowering legacy, Sean instead established his own heroic reputation. The father played a daredevil on screen, the son--as brilliant, bright and daring as his father--was driven to increase the stakes. His final, gallant, and suicidal gesture carried the Flynn tradition to its inevitable conclusion.Meyers, Jeffrey is the author of 'Inherited Risk Errol and Sean Flynn in Hollywood and Vietnam' with ISBN 9780743210904 and ISBN 0743210905.
