Stoecker family history Flynn family history.Despite its raw tropical beauty, Errol Flynn's ''dream of happiness'' doesn't appear exactly idyllic, as a taxi makes a dramatic turn off the coast-hugging road onto the narrow seashell-encrusted driveway of the legendary actor's compound.
It's a few miles from the market town of Port Antonio, on the north coast of Jamaica, but it could just as well be an abandoned service road leading to some shantytown. There is no sign to indicate that the rakish star of countless swashbuckling adventures once called this coveted getaway home. At the bottom of the drive, thousands of split coconut husks form an ominous foot mountain, appearing like a forbidden burial ground on the bad side of Gilligan's island.
A 's glass-and-concrete affair, the main house looks like a spaceship that has landed by way of the Hollywood Hills. It looks down upon a pool, which Errol dove into from his bedroom window, and the natural pond that is the Caribbean. The pool has remained empty since Hurricane Gilbert devastated the island inand many of the inhabitants' possessions still remain in boxes.
But there is life on this planet. Since inheriting the house inErrol's third wife, Patrice Wymore Flynn, has lived here. She keeps the 2,acre estate afloat with the help of her way-copacetic grandson, year-old Luke, a full-time surfer, occasional Tommy Hilfiger model and sometime actor-filmmaker.
Some older ranch hands who worked for Errol up to his death at 50 in look as if they've seen a ghost when a wispy mustache is added to Luke's boyish face for a fashion shoot.
The year-old grand dame and her 6-foot-3 grandson break into a Charleston step while posing in front of the grounds' old villa ruins. Luke is a natural, displaying none of the reticence he might have inherited from a family scorched by scandal and a history of tragedy. His grandmother's marriage to Errol lasted only eight years, ending in Their daughter, Arnella, Luke's mother, was an aspiring model who died of an apparent drug overdose in His uncle Sean, Errol's boy from a previous marriage, was captured in in Cambodia while working as a special correspondent for Time magazine.
Most likely he was poisoned in a hospital there about a year later. Then, of course, there was Errol's alcoholism, womanizing and statutory rape charges.
According to Patrice, Luke does not share his grandfather's vices, but they do have a few things in common. But he needs some time to find his wings. We'll give him that. Says Luke: ''I never met my grandfather, but everyone says that I'm a lot like him. We liked the same things -- the ocean, sailing, going to Jamaica, going on adventures.
On the island, Luke's adventures invariably include his three childhood buddies: Jermane, Omar and, yes, Errol. Like his friends, Luke ends each sentence with ''mon'' and falls into a Jamaican patois with ease.
He is working on two documentaries: one on his island life, the other on the importance of Jamaica's reggae music scene. It's part of my life, too. She was my best friend as well as my mother. She was very cool, a truly free spirit.

His next part was slightly bigger, in Don't Bet on Blondesa B-picture screwball comedy. The studio originally intended to cast Robert Donatbut he turned down the part, afraid that his chronic asthma would make it impossible for him to perform the strenuous role.

Wizened and old before her time she died a sad and lonely drug addict in Septemberaged She could have lived the good life and been heir to the 3, acre Flynn Estate, but like her father she drowned her demons in drink and drugs and died prematurely.
Her exasperated mother, who had long since given up trying to rescue her wayward daughter, tried to turn a blind eye as Arnella paraded around the local beach with her Rastafarian boyfriends, high on a mixture of white rum, white powder and ganja. On September 21 the embarrassment ended when plantation workers discovered Arnella dead in her bed. The official cause of death was heart failure due to bilateral lung disease. But ask any of the locals on the Caribbean island and they will tell you it was a long, slow suicide by hard living.

The rocky coves that attracted Flynn to the island in the first place are used by cocaine smugglers on their way from Columbia to the US with their deadly cargo and marijuana grows freely in the verdant hills around the Flynn home. But for a while she did appear to make a start in life. She had a son Luke in by a New Yorker named Carl and spent several years there, working as a model and trading off her famous name.
Her face graced the covers of magazines around the world. She was a celebrity to everyone on the island without ever asking for fame. Even her father needed to dilute the liquor with water or juice to stomach it. And she found an endless supply of cocaine, marijuana and men among the easy going Rastas camped out in bamboo huts on Long Bay beach. Most of all, she found companionship.Flynn was the son of a prominent Australian marine biologist and zoologist.
As such, he was sent to the best schools available—and was expelled from virtually all of them. He was a shipping clerk in Sydney before traveling to Papua New Guineawhere he worked as a plantation overseer and gold miner.

In he was charged with the statutory rape of two teenaged girls, but he was acquitted as a result of the flamboyant legal maneuvers of his attorneys. Nevertheless, his image was severely tarnished.

Before he died of a heart attack in at age 50, the swashbuckling star of Captain Blood and The Adventures of Robin Hood had been accused—and acquitted—of the statutory rape of two teenage girls and had made a lurid name for himself as a hard-drinking womanizer.
