Double Take

Patric Knowles & Erol Flynn

Knowles (L) and Flynn (R)

Golden-era actor Patric Knowles had more than a passing resemblance to Warner Bros. Studio star Erol Flynn. The two were friends in real life, and made four films together; Charge Of The Light Brigade in 1936, and Robin Hood, Four’s A Crowd and The Sisters, all in 1938. 

While he was probably often thought of as Warner’s  B-movie Erol Flynn, he starred in numerous A-list movies, alongside Bette Davis, Abbott & Costello, William Powell, Myrna Loy, and Lucille Ball, to name a few.
