Flynn held a number of odd jobs trying to find his place in the world until his debut film in 1933, but it was in film acting where he left his mark on generations to come. As passionate on screen as he was off it, he is known for his roles as a zealous rebel and man of action who won the hearts of damsels (on screen and off). It's his unabashed charisma that lives on in many young actors today.
