On Her Majesty’s Secret Service: Errol Flynn in THE SEA HAWK (Warner Brothers 1940)

cracked rear viewer

Warner Brothers pulled out all the stops for their 1940 epic THE SEA HAWK. There’s dashing Errol Flynn swashbuckling his way across the Silver Screen once again, the proverbial cast of thousands, high seas action, romance, political intrigue, superb special effects, and a spirited score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold.

Happy American Redneck Day from Gretchen Wilson!

Now, myself, I’m not a redneck.  Neither is Erin.  But we’ve got enough rednecks in our family that I think we’ve both earned the right to take off work and celebrate this holiday.  I’m not sure how exactly one celebrates American Redneck Day, to be honest.  I’ll probably listen to All Summer Long once or twice and maybe I’ll watch some YouTube videos of people shooting beer cans.  That should be fun.

Anyway, this video is called Redneck Yacht Club and it really makes me want to go up to the lake this weekend.
